Job 35 Bible Study
1. Be humble and acknowledge your sins
Everyone is a sinner and is prone to do mistake. If you do something wrong, someone may come and tell you you are wrong and you may not like that. We must always be humble and think why others confront us and contemplate over the actions we have taken. If you are wrong, you must humble yourself and admit it. In 1 John 1:8, if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
