Day 35 Job's response

Ch 12 & 13 The friends were getting high and mighty with their arguments as Job has to keep his own framework of sanity by saying that he has a mind as well as them, he is not inferior to them and won't be bullied into their way of thinking. 12V3b and 13v2b

Job calls them "worthless physicians", and that the greatest good they could do , and the best wisdom they could offer, is to keep silent 13v5.

Maybe looking closely at Job's response will help us, as we try to help those going through trials around us. Do we rub salt into wounds rather than rinse with the saline of our tears, as we share their times of suffering?
