Earlier this month, my family read the story of Job from the Old Testament in the Bible. At the beginning of the story, Job loses everything—his wealth, children, and health. Here is his response: “​Then Job arose, and ​​​rent​ his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, and said, ​​​Naked​ came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the ​​Lord​​ gave, and the ​​Lord​​ hath ​​​taken​ away; ​​​blessed​ be the name of the ​​Lord​​.” (Job 1:20-21)

Job provides good perspective here: we all came into the world with nothing and we will all leave this world with nothing. Everything we enjoy in life is temporary—death is not an “if” but a “when” and we don’t take anything with us. Even before death, the present circumstances of our lives are temporary. The key is to be grateful for the jobs, health, and possessions we have while we have them. And being grateful fortifies us against the time when we will lose these things.
