A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, May 31

Job 6:14

"Anyone who withholds kindness from a friend forsakes the fear of the Almighty."

Job is such a difficult book to understand for me, and when I read it, I feel like I am being pitched back and forth between Job and his friends. What could his friends have said or done to be more helpful? In any event, Job does not receive their "advice" too well. Sometimes kindness is the most powerful part of active friendship- more powerful than unsolicited advice, anyway. Just being with Job, and staying by his side may be the model for us.

Holy Lord, help me to be a good friend. Not a friend full of advice and "better ideas" but a friend full of patience and love. Amen

Becky, transforming
