Job is constantly accused by his friends of sin or pride or selfishness. They believe that suffering is always our own fault but that there is a way to avoid suffering if only we are holy enough or repent enough of our sins. Still today people talk as if there is a special way of praying that will keep us free from hurt and suffering. However even Jesus Himself faced the most terrible and unjust suffering of all. The book of Job wants to teach us to think again about suffering: suffering may contain some of the deepest treasures from the Living God.
