Job 1:5 New International Version (NIV)
5 When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would make arrangements for them to be purified. Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them, thinking, “Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” This was Job’s regular custom.
Job probably lived around the time of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. This was before God gave his written Word. At this time, the father was the family’s religious leader. The family leader would go to God and ask forgiveness or sins that he and his family had committed. Job did this out of love for God. Job showed deep concern for the spiritual welfare for his children. Today, you can show the same concern by praying for your children. This will mean sacrificing time each day to ask God to forgive them, to help them grow, to protect them, and to help them please God. Be a praying parent for your children and your children’s children.
