Job 1:4 & 5

"His sons used to hold feasts in their homes on their birthdays, and they would invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. 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." NIV translation

The man was blessed in many ways but we see that his main worry was for his children and their relationship with the Lord. They would get together for parties that could last for up to a week and, when it was over, Job would present burnt offerings on their behalf just in case they had sinned during that time. The death of the animals in the sacrifices was a picture of Christ the Redeemer and the fact that He paid the price for all of man's sins. This was a demonstration of the depth of the man's faith as he took his fears directly to God and we are reminded that the best preparation for the dark night of trials in our faith is to have a solid relationship with the Lord while the sun is shining.
