Job 2:1, 3

 
Now when Job's three friends heard of all this adversity that had come upon him, each one came from his own place… So they sat down with him on the ground seven days and seven nights, and no one spoke a word to him, for they saw that his grief was very great.
Job 2:1, 3

The book of Job teaches us two important lessons: to be patient in our own trials and that we would learn how to help others on their trails. These three guys, with all sincerity, had heard of Job's tragedy. As the buzz circulated around the region, these three got together and decided to do something about it. When they finally found Job at the refuse dump they were completely and utterly taken back. They couldn't even recognize him. So they sat down with him in silence for seven days.

Even though once they started talking, they were dead wrong about Job’s situation and why it had happened, they did get this right. The best way to help people who are hurting is just to be with them. Explanations never heal a broken heart -- love does -- and sharing the love of God brings a balm to anyone that is hurting.

Mourning with those who mourn,

Pastor Gerard Deleeuw
