In our online time today we spent our time discussing Job 1-24. There is so much more to this book than the “scene setup” in chapters 1-2 and “God shows up” in 40-42.
Jeremiah 17:9-10 reminds us that our hearts are more deceitful than anything else, and we can’t even understand the depth of the deceit. But God does understand and know our hearts . . . so some of the 3 friends’ perceptions draw from their listening to their heart and experience and dreams and visions. Job, as miserable as he was, still clung to God’s truth. Yes, he complains. Yes, he asks why (many times). But he knows that wisdom comes from God (12:13ff). He just wants God to “clue him in” on His purposes . . .
Though we didn’t discuss 1 Corinthians 1-8 this week, if you have comments on that portion, you are welcome to do so. The plan is to discuss it next week or the week after.
Remember, if you have missed some days, just jump right back in on today’s day. Please don’t give up!
