👉 Bildad makes some wrong assumptions regarding Job’s suffering.
- He assumes suffering is always a result of sin (v 4).
- He assumes that the pure and upright will be spared any suffering (v 5-6).
- He assumes painful trials are an indication that God has rejected Job (v 20).
And it’s easy to shake our heads at Bildad and ask, “How could he think that?”
But – remember – we are privy to what took place behind the scenes. He is not. Also – how often do we think some variation of these thoughts when life is particularly painful?
This is why it is vitally important to have godly friends speaking truth into our lives.
