round 2

Good afternoon sisters and brothers,
We read earlier this week how Satan challenged Job to a bet. In round one, God allowed Satan to wipe out Job's property and family. Despite that, Job continued to worship God. Satan isn't discouraged, but challenges God again. He says property doesn't matter much in the end, but if God attacks Job's health, Job will curse him. Satan never gives up.
God bless,

Job 2:1-6
One day the heavenly beings came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the Lord. 2The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Satan answered the Lord, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking up and down on it.” 3The Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man who fears God and turns away from evil. He still persists in his integrity, although you incited me against him, to destroy him for no reason.”

4Then Satan answered the Lord, “Skin for skin! All that people have they will give to save their lives. 5But stretch out your hand now and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse you to your face.” 6The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, he is in your power; only spare his life.”
