How does our insecurity make us react?
Something to think about
Why is Zophar so agitated? He and his friends have come to comfort Job, but talking with him stirs up agitation within them.
Perhaps it is because the sight of the once successful and influential Job, sitting broken by his suffering, is threatening and unsettling. Job is an unwelcome example of how fragile our security really is. It is easier to conclude that he must have done something to deserve it - because I can, then I am safe (because obviously I will not make the same mistake).
It is perhaps Job’s vulnerability that ultimately vindicates him before God.
