MENTORING CORNER/STUDY GUIDE, PART 3: JOB’S RESPONSE, 25.10.19
- How would you have responded to Job’s friends?
- List all the ways that Job responded and defended himself.
- In what ways would you have suggested that Job could have altered his responses?
- What difference would it have made?
- How do you respond when you are blamed and accused unfairly?
- What happens for you, when you are in desperate need of loving kindness and compassion and are met instead with self-righteous, incriminating assumptions & accusations?
- How would you have responded to God? Would you have lost your faith, and turned your back on God, or would you have been able to say as Job, “as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives” (Job 19:25)?
- What life lesson comes forth for you?
- Think of ways that you respond automatically, without thinking, when you are under attack. Hindsight always makes easier what our next response should be. When you reflect on past situations, what things do you observe, and how would those change your response?
- Our purpose here should be to discover what we can learn from Job’s experience. What can you summarize that you have learned?
- How can you apply what you have learned?
- What do you identify as the most effective strategy or response that Job made?
