Job’s tent

Reading through part of Job this afternoon, something struck me at 29:4 where Job mentions he lived in a tent. As wealthy as we consider Job (and rightly so), his home was a tent. His wealth was measured in servants and animals. Today, we would consider it poverty to be reduced to life in a tent. We inhabit grand houses (which we might even consider too small) stuffed with all manner of items Job could never have imagined (which we might consider not new enough). With all the warnings about money in the Bible, we’d better not be thinking they apply to someone else. WE are the rich.
