What Can We Do To Help Others Who Experience Anguish?

To download the Bible Study Preparation Materials for November 3, 2010, please click here.

Last week in Bible Study we began our study of the book of Job by reviewing Chapters 1 and 2.  We discussed the causes of human suffering and we looked to the Bible for answers.  This week  we will study Job (as he is in a state of anguish) and attempt to discern what the Word of God has to say to us, His people, concerning how best to comfort those who experience anguish.

Over the next few weeks, we will be examining Job in large chunks of scripture.  So please feel free to read ahead and review chapters 3:1 – 27:23

Bible Study Scripture:  Job 3:11-15; 3:23; 7:1-6; 9:1-31; 12:4; 19:7-20; 6:2-3; 6:14; 7:11; 10:1;  chapter 29;  chapter 30

Bible Study Question of the week:

Why do you think God pointed out Job to Satan?  What was God trying to achieve?  If you are able, please use scripture to support your response:)
