USELESS PEOPLE

Fair-weather Friends

 

Job 11:11

 

God, All knowing

 

“For He knows false men, And He sees iniquity without investigating.

 

LESSON

 

Eliphaz and Bildad had spoken mainly of God’s justice. Zophar extolled His wisdom. He rightly explained that God’s wisdom is unfathomable, but he inadvertently claimed to fathom it by saying Job deserved more punishment than he was getting. This is a verbal fist fight as they battle out their beliefs and opinions on what is going on in Job’s life. And this is the last thing Job really needs. He seems to cry out for their support, not their assumptions.

Vain man reasons upon the ways of God, and presumes to know the depths of the Divine wisdom. Job and his friends and a lot of us attempt to explain the name and ways of God, but our efforts are vain, and exposes a folly equal to our ignorance.
