Summarize what you read in one paragraph: Job 25-28 is summarized in simple as a question of where is God when bad things happen, and does he really punish those who do evil. In response, Job talks about just how grand God is and how much we lack wisdom and understanding. He clarifies that we value minerals he created over fear of God and turning away from evil which has far greater value.
What is one key verse? Job 28:28 And he said to man ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, and to turn away from evil is understanding.’
How does what you read change your vision of God? This passage reminds me that God is above my definition of right and wrong and the idea of justice.
How does what you read change your vision of yourself or others? It makes me realize that wisdom comes from God’s word and to spread that word is far greater of a purpose than ever.
How will you Go With God because of this reading? (What is an action step?) By diving deeper into Job and really understanding how we can share the gospel ie. “wisdom and understanding”.
Where did you see Jesus in these chapters? (What made you think about Jesus?) Job 26:12 By his power he stilled the sea.
One Reply to “5.27 Job 25-28”
Thank you for sharing, Powell’s! I was also impacted by Job’s description of God’s power in Job 26. We serve a mighty God!
