we have isn’t the Lord it is not something we will keep.
Job 7:1-2 King James Version (KJV)
there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the
days of an hireling?
a servant earnestly desireth the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for the
reward of his work:
Job 7:1-2 Good News Translation (GNT)
life is like forced army service,
a life of hard manual labor,
a slave longing for cool shade;
a worker waiting to be paid.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.
1 Life is hard and we have to work at it. A good life does
not often times come easy but I life with the Lord makes everything worth it,
living for the Lord has its challenges but it is worth living more than a life
without Him where people still have difficulties. As Christians we still have
life like this be we have a loving Boss in Christ.
2 Slaves often times would work even under the hardest
conditions and were pushed to the most extreme conditions, they would be
allowed to be in the shade because this is where their bosses would be if they
were out there. Workers get paid but slaves don’t, workers often times have
some benefits but slaves do not, we have to thru a lot in life but with Christ
we can get thru it all.
Keep our eyes on Jesus.
