3 Insights that help us learn more about Job's friends:
1. Who are Job's friends?
Their Belief: God is just and He will see to it that people get what they deserve. If you fear God, you will be blessed. If you sin, you will suffer.
Clear cut, black and white, no ifs, ands or buts.
Friends: Since Job is suffering, he must have sinned. God is just.
Job: I have not sinned to any degree this suffering warrants, so God must be treating me unjustly.
2. Job's friends think he deserved this because he did something wrong before God.
3. Where did Job's friends go wrong?
At least 3 ways Job's friends went wrong:
* Their view of God's justice was incomplete
* They were trying to preserve their view of God out of fear
* They did not apply God's truth correctly
What can we learn from the example of Job's friends?
1. Be sensitive and patient
2. Be humble
3. Be practical


4. Be prayerful
