Scripture reference: Philippians 4:19 (ESV)
One day, Job’s three friends came to comfort him. When they visited him, they were shocked at his terrible condition.
The first friend, likely with the best intentions, tried to comfort Job by explaining why he was suffering. The second friend said he suffered because he had not admitted his sins. And the third friend said God was using Job’s suffering to mold and train him. While there might be a hint of truth to what Job’s friends said, their ideas were based on the wrong assumptions.
Sometimes when we want to comfort another person, we give them explanations about their lives, but we don’t know what is really going on; only God knows. In these times, we just need to bring comfort in the form of a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, a good laugh, and a good prayer.
Here are some comforting words to share with a person who is in need:
“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 (ESV)
This has been your B Moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
