Is God Punishing Me?
July 27, 2018 • Job 4-8
So often when we experience times of suffering we long to know why and seek biblical explanations. Well-meaning individuals offer the best explanations they can form from their understanding of scripture. But just because an explanation is offered, does that mean it’s always right in every circumstance? As Job’s friends enter into his suffering, they too try to explain why bad things happen to good people. In their explanations, we recognize many of the same rationalizations and questions we have as we try to make sense of undeserved suffering.
