October 17, 2019: SOAP #3605:  Job 1-2; Acts 6-7

Scripture:  Job (NIV) 1:8 Then the LORD said to Satan,“Have you considered my servant Job? There is no-one on earth like him; heis blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.”

Observation:  There are times in life when we need acharacter reference"someone who knows us and is willing to speak on our behalf.  A good reference must themselves have a good characterand be believable.  Job's character referenceis the highest available.  Job'sreference knew Job completely and only, always speaks the truth.  Here is a character reference whose characteris above reproach!  What this CharacterWitness says about Job is true! 

People who impugned Job's character in his day did not have the benefit of thisgreat Character Witness; so, it is understandable that they tried to make senseof Job's trials by questioning Job's character. Job must have sinned.  Job needsto repent.   People who question Job's character todayshould pay attention to what God says about Job!      

Application:   Beforespeaking what I think I know about somebody, it is wise to find out what God issaying about them.   

Prayer:  Holy Spirit, nudge me when I start talkingabout things of which I have no knowledge. Amen
