Job 2-4, James 1
19My dear brothers and sisters, understand this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger
A reminder to be patient and extend grace to one another
12Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. This verse brings great hope!
Job finally snaps a little but, but I think in this passage we also see the importance of having a good Christian community around you to support you. Instead of feeding into Job feeling sorry for himself, his friends point him back to the gospel.
I have read Job in the past and have always loved how immovable he was despite his circumstances. Something I realized today is he blames satan/the oppressor rather than God like his friends and wife wanted to do.
