Bible Passage: Job 1:1;2:1-10
Job is considered the oldest book contained in the Bible. The book of Job comes from a story that Israelite families passed down through generations. Job is described as blameless and upright who feared God and shunned evil. I think any of us would like to be described in the same way as Job. And yet, we see that the proverbial rug was pulled out from under him. This story is written to discuss idea of suffering and “why do bad things happen to good people?” I admit, I struggle with the same question.
