Discussion for Job 1

  • Stephen Woehr
    What helped make Job so great in the eyes of God before all his suffering began was not so much what he did or didn't do. It was his heart attitude. Verse 1 tells us more about his heart than about his works, and verse 5 shows how his love for God played out in his life in one area, that of his children.
  • Nnaji kenneth
    if the people of God should have the understanding that job had, knowing that every thing int this world is vanity and equally know that we came to this world naked and will go back naked. only God gives and equally takes.
  • Sharon Stewart
    This book of job is my life do anyone else agree with me
  • Mikey
    In spite of all the trials and tribulations we may have in life as a humble servant of God we should not be tempted by Satan and his evil work because God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son and whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life as job said god give and he takes away he created heaven and earth and not we ourselves
  • Dhamuzungu Herbert
    I have learn t a lot about job the faithful servant of God that in spite of the misfortunes,challenges,troubles that may befell you,The only palace of safety and comfort is in the hands of the most high God who is the source of life.
  • Reece
    The book of JOB has kept me humble among other words of GOD, and the Holy Spirit. Having a job makes me think of the book of JOB. When I feel like I've worked so hard and I've lost everything, I remember JOB and GOD'S promise to us all. HE will never leave us nor forsake us. He was with JOB the whole time.
