My Sunday School class continued studying JOB this week, going over chapters eight and nine. Another friend of Job has come one the scene, Bildad, offering advice, which Job finds no comfort in. We also studied several New Testament passages regarding suffering and what God wants to teach us regarding suffering. I posed the question:
"What do you think are some of the reasons God allows suffering?" There were several great, biblically based answers. My favorite was "suffering brings us closer to the cross." (D.S.)I've already heard from some of you regarding suffering, but would love to hear from any of you and your thoughts regarding suffering.
These are the NT passages we studied.
Romans 8:16-18; II Thessalonians 1:3-8; Colossians 1:24; I Peter 2:18-23; I Peterb3:14-17; I Peter 4:1-2, 13-19, I Peter 5:8-10
