Friends & Suffering
Job 2-11
October 30, 2016
Job Old Testament

We have all been created with the need for friendship-having friends and being a friend. Friends are especially vital during difficult times. So it’s important for all of us to learn how to be a good friend to those who are suffering. In the book of Job, Job is suffering from unimaginable pain-the death of all ten of his children, the loss of everything materially, and even physical affliction. If anybody needed a friend, it was Job! Job had a circle of 5 friends-his wife and 4 buddies-who sometimes proved to be good friends, and who sometimes proved to be not-so-good friends. In today’s study, Pastor Gary takes the good and the bad of Job’s friends and translates it into three important principles for being a good friend to someone who is suffering.
