Finding God’s wisdom in the midst of suffering

Death, destruction, disease… the book of Job isn’t the easiest read. A man who leads an upright life, suddenly plunged into the depths of despair, does not sit well with us. But there is more to the story than that, and precious wisdom can be found. By reflecting on the advice offered by Job’s ‘comforters’, we are invited to address our own understanding of seemingly random suffering. Job’s story ultimately points to the wisdom of God, which we can find in Jesus Christ, our hope.

These seven insightful sessions help us to realise that:

  • Our life circumstances are not an indication of God’s judgment of us.
  • Intellectual arguments are often unhelpful to those facing struggles; but friendship, compassion and an encounter with God are invaluable.
  • The wisdom of God, personified in Jesus, is our source of strength and direction through any trials we face.

Icebreakers, Bible readings, eye openers, discussion starters, personal application make this a rich resource for group or individual study.
