When we seek to help those who are suffering, we must remember that Job’s friends are not a good example! The thing that God points out about them is that they did not speak accurately about Him -like Job did. In our suffering, we can sometimes be irritated by those who are not wise or who may falsely think they are spiritually mature. The important thing is to hold onto your relationship with God- and not to be bowled over by “religious” people. God gives you permission to disagree because of His faithful love.
Job 42:7-9 (NLT)
7 ‘After the Lord had finished speaking to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “I am angry with you and your two friends, for you have not spoken accurately about me, as my servant Job has. 8 So take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and offer a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer on your behalf. I will not treat you as you deserve, for you have not spoken accurately about me, as my servant Job has.” 9 So Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite did as the Lord commanded them, and the Lord accepted Job’s prayer.’
