Do You Ever Wonder . . .?

Do You Ever Wonder . . .?

Do you ever wonder what Job’s wife might have said if she knew how Job got on Satan’s radar to begin with?

Do you ever wonder what else Job’s wife might have said throughout their tragedies besides the famed, “Curse God and die”?

Do you ever wonder why we know nothing of what she says or does the day that all ten of her children are killed?

Do you ever wonder how deeply her heart sank when she received the news?

Do you ever wonder what you might say if that happened to you?

Do you ever wonder if you might need a little grace and a seven-second delay between what you say and what others hear?

Looks like Job gave her a little grace–and forgiveness, too. In fact, at least ten more times if I’m understanding their story.

Real life faith. It’s not for cowards.
