Job 27 Bible Study
1. Be considerate towards people
Job’s three friends were inconsiderate. They did not bring comfort to Job instead they hurt him by simply making judgment out of their own view points. We must be considerate towards people. In Romans 12:15, rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. In Hebrews 13:3, remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.
