Wednesday's Wisdom

Hey kids! Hope your halfway-point is going well. Just a couple of more days! I worked yesterday and today, so I've had a busy couple of days, but they were good days and I always like learning new things like I do often at work.

**Free Kid's Meal at Friendly's!
In this week's Big Y Flyer (at least in MA), Friendly's Ice Cream is buy one, get one free. To receive your free Friendly's meal, do the following:

* Buy the Friendly's sale ice cream
* Receive your silver coin on purchase
* Take your silver coin to the customer service desk to receive your Kid's Meal coupon!

It's that simple!

So today is Wednesday, and Wednesdays are for wisdom. Wisdom, in my opinion, can only come truly from one source, and that is the Bible. One of my new favorite verses is Job 1:20 "Then Job arose, tore his robe, and shaved his head; and he fell to the ground and worshiped".

The story of Job goes that he was one of the wealthiest people in his country at his time; the Lord had richly blessed him. Satan was pretty sure that Job would curse God to His face if he took away everything that God had given him, and God gave Satan permission to test Job, but not to kill him. So he took his house, his 10 children, his livestock and livelihood, his servants, just about everything. Upon hearing of the news, instead of cursing and being angry with God, he fell down and worshiped.

Is this our response to adversity? God knows all, and knows what's for our good, but do we believe it? Do we believe He had our best interest in mind? Job did, and he was prepared for whatever test came his way that the Lord approved for him to endure.

Next time you're going through a test, even a financial test (and we all have those), ask yourself if you think that God has your best interest at heart. In the end, I believe you will know the answer.
