Wealth and Righteousness

In this article, we look at the human relationship between wealthiness and righteousness. Occupation is the narrative of a adult male who suffered a great deal, through no fault of His own

The name of Occupation have respective meanings. The short listing includes persecuted, cruelly or ill will treated, hated and counted as an enemy, one that grieves or moans, persecuted one, the patient sufferer

Job, as mentioned above, was a righteous, successful and affluent adult male who was respected in the community. "There was a adult male in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that adult male was blameless and upright, and one who feared Supreme Being and shunned wicked (Job 1:1). He was blameless not sinless.

Job knew God. He knew the cardinal rules of philosophy though at that clip the Bibles did not be in the word form that we have got them today. He respected Supreme Being and His philosophy and tried to dwell by Godly principles. He avoided wicked as much as he could. Occupation was a adult male who was able to divide in his mind, his worldly ownerships from his Negro spiritual possessions. He had not departed from God's commandments as expressed in Occupation 23:12 "I have got got not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have cherished the words of His oral cavity more than my necessary food."

He had a married woman and 10 children, all of whom lived in their ain person homes. We make not cognize his lineage but his recognition of Supreme Being and the patterns of religion is what characterised the man. Helium lived in a very ancient epoch and yet possessed a thorough cognition of God, history and Negro spiritual life.

Being a husbandman of harvests would connote that Occupation was not nomadic. He was stabilised in his life. He was involved in the social, local government and justness of his region. We also cognize that he had blood brothers (19:17)
He had a repute for righteousness and perhaps forbearance as reflected in Ezekiel 14:14 " Even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would present only themselves by their righteousness," states the Godhead GOD"

Job's righteousness

We have got seen above that Supreme Being testified to Job's character. The book of Occupation gives us further insight into the type of fictional character that delights God. This is recorded in Occupation 31. Here Occupation was asserting his artlessness to Supreme Being and called upon Supreme Being to reply based on righteousness. Occupation exhibited the followers features as recorded in this chapter

• His mental attitude to women: he have not lusted after them: 31:1-4

• Attitude to lies: He have not lied or deceived : 31:5-8

• Attitude to adultery: he have not committed adultery: 31:9-12

• Attitude to servants: he have not failed to assist his retainers (31:13-15)

• Attitude to mediocre people: he have not failed to assist the mediocre and needy: 31:16-23

• Attitude to wealth: he have not trusted in his wealth: 31: 24-25

• Attitude to false gods: he have not turned to idolatry: 31:26-28

• Attitude to enemies: he have looked for their destruction: 31:29-30

• Attitude to strangers: he have not been stingy: 31:31-32

• Attitude to evil: he have not hidden his sin: 31:33-34

• Attitude to farm workers: he have not been unfair: 31:38-40

Basically, Occupation was generous with his clip and money. He was there to assist the mediocre and used his money for the public good. He helped many people, not just his family, friends and employers. He guarded both his private and public life.

This gives us an penetration as work force and women who manage money, no substance how little or large - this is the type of behavior expected of Christians.
