31 If the men [math] of my
tabernacle ['ohel] said ['amar] not, Oh that we had [nathan]
of his flesh [basar]! we cannot be satisfied [saba`].
32 The stranger [ger] did not lodge [luwn] in the street [chuwts]: but
I opened [pathach] my doors [deleth] to the traveller ['orach]. KJV-Interlinear
31 'Have the men of my tent not
said, 'Who can find one who has not been satisfied with his meat'? 32 'The alien has not lodged outside, For I
have opened my doors to the traveler. NASB
Job extended his hospitality to visitors and travelers
who passed by his business operations.
Remember that Job was in the freight business, farming business, herd
business, and probably many other things.
His assets, positions, and resources were so extensive
that he was bound to meet many folks who traveled or otherwise had business,
legal, or social relationships with him.
He turned away no one.
His hospitality was so extensive, that no one could
leave his home or business and say that they went away hungry.
Job treated all as thought they were family. He treated all just as he would treat his own
family. He played favorites with no one,
and was polite and generous with everyone.
God had blessed him generously with much, and so, he
in turn was generous with everyone.
Job understood that it is God who provides, and what
you use, share, or give away responsibly, God will certainly replace. Your
charity or generosity becomes a reward to your character, and much more.
Job also understood that whatsoever you keep through
greed or through the lack of generosity, or through selfishness, or through
indifference or excuse, then God will eventually remove from you and no
replacement will follow. There is no
reward for failure to imitate Gods graciousness.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
