Untaken Advice



With all ten of Job’s children dead, his wealth gone, and now his health, his wife advised him, “Curse God and die!”

His response? “Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?” (Job 2:9-10).

What if he had done as she said? Would he have been better off?


The end of Job’s story proves that holding onto God ultimately brings great reward (Job 42:10-17; James 5:11).

True, Job questioned God’s justice and wondered why he suffered as he did, but he didn’t give up on God.

Who can best survive hardship? The person who believes that nothing can “separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:39).
