But the mountain falls and crumbles away,
and the rock is removed from its place;
the waters wear away the stones;
the torrents wash away the soil of the earth;
so you destroy the hope of mortals.

Job 14:18–19 (NRSV)

Many Christians are taught to expect blessings in life. Job says no. Hope is washed away like soil in a flood.

If you serve God for the blessings, you probably aren’t truly serving God.
