When Life Doesn’t Make Sense
Speaker: James Revelino Passage: Job 1:1– 42:17
In our earthly life, we understand when we suffer for sins we know we have committed; however, seemingly unwarranted suffering befuddles us. The ’inexplicable’ events leading to such suffering appear out of nowhere and possess neither rhyme nor reason known to us. Job, a holy and prosperous man, was in such a situation. Great and unexpected evil befell him leading to long-lasting suffering. And, God uses Job’s life and trials to teach what He expects of us when life lacks logic. What should we do when suffering persists but life events do not make sense to us?
