The right words, spoken in the wrong way.
Something to think about
Job’s friends say many true things about God, yet ultimately are shown to have not represented God truly.
Believing that God cares about justice lies behind Christian Aid’s work. Believing that one day the fire of injustice in this world will be quenched gives us faith to continue when we may be tempted to be discouraged.
So, what is wrong with what Job’s friends are saying? It may be something to do with the fact that it is the people who are in a position of power and privilege who are lecturing about the justice of God to one who is poor and suffering. Sometimes the right words, spoken in the wrong way by the wrong person, become the wrong words.
