Last week we started looking at Job through the eyes of a parent who has also lost a child. This week continues this fascinating study, starting with of Job’s friends, whom he calls “miserable comforters”.
There are many things we can relate to in the book of Job, much more than I realized until I dug into the book of Job for the purpose of this series in looking at parents in the Bible who have lost a child.
In this episode, we also take a look at Satan’s role in this, and how it might be a very similar role he played in the death of our own child.
And then, of course, there is God’s over arching view that comes into play, which is important to look at through a different lense than we are probably used to in this unique book in the Bible.
I pray you come away encouraged, with fresh new insight from someone we usually only partially hear about in messages about Job and his trials.
