Job was a man who loved God. Satan told God that he only reason Job loved Him was because He allowed him to be wealthy. So to prove him wrong, God allowed Satan to take all of Job's possessions. Job's oldest son's home was destroyed by a violent wind. All of Job's children were partying there and were killed. In his sadness, Job tore his robe. Despite all his loses he still loved God! Since Satan's 'theory' didn't turn out well, he proposed that Job would turn away from God if He made him very ill. Again, God allowed Job to become sick but he still did not turn away from God! Even his own wife told Job to curse The Lord, but he still remained faithful. Soon, Job had 10 more children and had twice as much riches as he had before.
