Job 8:1 – Job 24:25

Guest Blog written by: Colin Raynor

Put yourself in Job’s position.  How often are our actions swayed because of other people?  (Guys, I know we’ve all done dumb stuff to try and impress a girl.)  In this situation though Job’s three “friends” Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar came to comfort him (Job 2:11).  They don’t quite do that though.  They call him a liar Chapter 15, they call him wicked Ch19, and even tell him he deserves worse Ch 11!  We all would say, “my friends would never do that”, or “I would never be like his friends”.  But in reality, being like that can be human nature and you not even know it.  So, the question is, if we know friends who we hang out with can effect our decisions will we stay strong like Job or be like Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar?
