Jesse Tree: Day 7
Today we read about the trials of Job. This is one of the reading we do not have an ornament to correlate. We plan to frame an icon of Job for next year. Our reading comes from the book of Job, and tells how Job was a righteous man before God. Satan wished to show that men are only faithful to God in times of good, and so God allowed Satan to submit Job to many tests of faith. We hear how despite all of the trials he endured, Job did not sin against God, and God rewarded him.
