“To him who is afflicted, kindness should be shown by his friend, Even though he forsakes the fear of the Almighty.” Job 6:14, NKJV
Over the years, I have judged by some of the best. You see, it is unfortunate, but Job’s comforters still exist. There are those who just can’t seem to keep from judging everything you say and do.
Now it is important to understand that Job was not guilty of any wrongdoing: “In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.” Job 1:22, NKJV
Job’s “friends” told him that it was obvious that he had some sin that, while though he had did it from men, he could not hid it from God. And God was judging him for his sin. Now essentially Job told them, “even if I had forsaken the fear of the Almighty, you ‘men of God’ should show me kindness.”
Now, at the end of the book, God speaks and says, “Who are these who don’t know what they are talking about?” If you have been a victim of these know-it-all’s you know how Job feels. Lord knows, I do.
But that is another story.
Think about it…
