I read through Job in April, and as always it amazed me!! Yet, I wondered about something, so I read it and re-read it, and found my answer.
"Why does everyone always just note everything good about Job...He actually cursed Jesus!!"
So, I was thinking about this so often, and talked with Mom about it.
- Read the start and ending, the first 4 chapters and the last chapter. Those are the only chapters actually showing that Job was praising God.
- Everything in between is his grief, his utter awful depression. But of course that normal because HE LOST EVERYTHING! But I still wondered why people never brought up that he grieved for like, 35 chapters.
- But then I read the very last chapter again, and a smile spread across my face. There it the ending, Job repents. And God STILL forgives him..after all his curses and depression. Because yes, I know, he said "He gives and takes away, blessed be the Lord" - But people made it all about that, and not about how the Lord forgives him.
