Poor Job. He experienced a horrendous trial in his life and he went through it with so-called “comforters.” Bildad was one of them who sat by Job’s side. But, when we read and study his questions, they’re not very comforting. Spend time this week studying Job 18-25, eight chapters that feature Bildad’s questions and Job’s responses.
Take your time reading these chapters. Ask the Lord to show you something new. In your journal or notebook, be sure to record: (1) To whom was the question asked? (2) What was the response? (3) What difference did the question make? (4) What do you realize about God that you didn’t before this week’s quest?
Remember – if you continue through these Weekly Quests, you will have studied every question in the Bible by the time you reach the end.
Please post your thoughts and insights. Everyone can learn from everyone.
