Why do People Suffer? Day 4

SCENE THREE

Setting: Behind the scenes.

READ

Job 2: 1-6

There was more happening than Job realised. Satan still didn't believe what God said (v. 3). So once again God gave him permission to test Job.

SCENE FOUR

Setting: The local rubbish heap.

READ

Job 2: 7-10

Job must have felt awful (vv. 7,8). No wonder he went to sit by the rubbish heap!

THINK

What people say can sometimes be even worse than the things we suffer. For example, they may say, "You're still a Christian? God didn't even get you through the exam!" Job's wife didn't seem to be much help (v. 9). But Job's answer was good (v. 10).

READ

Job 2: 11-13

Job's three friends were stuck for words (v. 13). But that can be the best thing of all when someone is suffering. Words don't always help.

PRAY

. . . for someone who is suffering now. You don't have to use lots of words!
