Job said, But a man is born to trouble as sparks fly upward.
All of us can attest to that.
Each new day brings new troubles. Though most of us worry a lot, most of the troubles that come our way are totally unanticipated.
Job continued to say, As for me, I seek God, and to God would I commit my cause.
Commit his cause? Is that his troubles? Or is it more than that? Job's troubles were all encompassing. When his four friends looked at him, they could see nothing but troubles.
Perhaps our Lord was referencing Job in His last words on the cross.
Today, like so many days, we experienced trouble. What are we to do now?
Finally today it dawned on me and I prayed, Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.
