Job’s Daughters

Nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as Job’s daughters, and their father granted them an inheritance along with their brothers.

Job 42:15 –

In the beginning of this book of the Bible, we see how Job was considered “blameless and upright”

Job does stand out from many OT godly people even in the sense Job does something that is not common in his day. He gives an inheritance to even his daughters. This I feel is noteworthy.

Job showed no partiality between his male heirs or his female heirs but loved them equally. It is very reflective of the heart of God. God is not partial or a picker of favorites. He loves people equally and does not favor men over women or this group of people over that group but honors everyone who loves and trusts him, and walks obediently toward Him.

This passage in Job 42:15 reflects what God will do for all of those whom have become His sons and daughters adopted through Jesus Christ, He will give us an inheritance in heaven and not favor anyone of us over the other. Each of us will be rewarded according to the good we do as a result of our faith. Whether the poor old grandma who is a kindhearted selfless soul- to the preacher in the pulpit. It does not matter what gift he has given us to serve His cause nearly as much as what we do with what He has entrusted to us.

God looks at the effort and motive of the heart. Not the size of a ministry or how big it seems.

Even the smallest act of kindness for His name sake, Jesus said that person wont lose their reward

40 “Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. 41 Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person’s reward. 42 And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.” Matthew 10:40-42 –

There is no need for Christians to compete, compare, or envy each other. We all must be busy and diligent to do the best where God has assigned us and when we do, we will receive His approval!
