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.
When we find ourselves facing small trials (compared to Job's), we whine instead of worship and blame God instead of blessing Him. Job had his perspective right: we deserve nothing and absolutely any good we have is from God; and God doesn't need our permission to leave or take. We usually have an elevated image of self, thinking we deserve better or God owes us. Not so with Job. He was a picture of humble faithfulness.
