In our suffering, how shall we react?


In our suffering, how shall we react? This is a pressing question that our answer will guide many of our attitudes. Job’s wife urged him to “curse God and die.” Many of us are tempted to think in such a way. But God has given us Job as a different way… 

“Shall we receive good from God, and shall we not receive evil?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips.” (‭Job‬ ‭2:10‬b ‭ESV‬‬) http://bible.com/59/job.2.10.esv

So which attitude shall you choose when suffering arises?

  1. That is one of my favorite verses – and one I think is not referenced enough. When my daughter was in a coma and doctors told us she had brain damage, that is the verse that the Lord brought to our minds.
