These are my thoughts, please share yours.


4 Job’s children had great sin and Job offered up sacrifices on their behalf, this man may have not known this, while his children did what was evil Job did what was just. The man may be right about God punishing his children this may be one of the reasons God allowed Satan to do these things to Job.


5 What this man is trying to say about Job is not fully accurate because we see how early even God refers to Job as righteous, yes Job was not perfect we learn he had a pride issue but this man was completely on base for what he was trying to say about Job, we can not just tell people they are sinners and beat them down, we share Christ thru love even though we have to let them know that they are sinners but that Christ died to save them, we have to do this without make ourselves seem to be better than them which is what this man was doing, make himself better than Job because God had not sent these things his way so Job’s sin must have been greater than his is what he thought, we can not have this mind frame when trying to bring people to the Lord.
