Iyov Forty: Attitude

“Bedeck yourself now with pride and excellence, and clothe yourself with glory and beauty (Job 40:10).” God is speaking right now, addressing Job directly. And I like the idea that despite everything Job has suffered, he can still maintain a degree of dignity by the way he carries himself and the attitude with which he approaches the world. It’s a fake it ’til you make it strategy. While in some ways this may be seen as condescending depending on the situation that someone is in, in this case I think it’s an important reminder that our attitude impacts so much of how others see us, how we see ourselves, and ultimately how we feel.
