So yesterday we talked more on Job and some other things he had to go through. Not only did he lose alot of things that were important to him, including his children, but satan also caused him to break out with sores ALL OVER!! Can you imagine just how painful that had to be?? They bothered Job so much that he used a broken piece of pottery to scrape at them... YOWZERS!!
While he was dealing with that, a few of his friends came by to sympathize with him, knowing that he had just gone through a very HUGE ordeal. They sat with him for 7 days in silence. That's pretty impressive, I'm sure that maybe most of us couldn't stay quiet for more than a day. But after seeing how much pain Job was in, even his wife, along with his friends, told him that God was the one who had caused these awful things to happen and that he should just curse God and die!! His wife just wanted him to be done with it already, but Job knowing the Lord, would not curse God, but praise him.
His friends were saying tons of things of why these things happened to him and that there had to be a reason, that maybe he was just a bad person. Well when we all read the story of Job we know that he was an honorable man, so it wasn't that at all. All I know is that it must have been absolute torture to have to go through something like that and not even being supported by your closest friends.
Everett will talk to us next week and we'll be able to get more in depth of what's happening in this true story.
