Living a Life Worth Living – Writings by Robin McKinley
The Book of Job (in the Bible’s Old Testament) is a long poem. This book discusses why innocent people suffer. God cares about people who suffer troubles. And God will help them, although sometimes they must be patient.
Job was a good man. But he lost all his possessions. His children died. He became so ill that he wanted to die. But he refused to insult God.
Job’s friends supposed that he was ill because of his evil deeds. But he was innocent. Then, a wise man named Elihu explained the truth to him and his friends. And God proved to them that God is great. God also showed them that he cares. Finally, God wanted Job to pray for his friends. In the end, God made him successful again.
