Are You The Kind Of Friend That Job Had?

Are You The Kind Of Friend That Job Had?

 Are you the kind of friend that Job had, when they couldn't understand;
Why such heartache and sickness fell his way; one unexpected day?
Are you the one to judge when you do not know the half of it, nor will;
While upon the one you have cast your judgment, is not mentioned when you pray?

So easy it is to think you know them ole so well;
As you wait nearby in hopes that they will utterly fail.
"Let's write a little poem and say a word or two;" You say.
Cause you do not believe them when they say,  "I'm not feeling well. "

Be very careful, you may not know, as much as you think you do;
Before you throw your darts of knowledge, with a heart of doubt, contempt.
When the one you judge may be learning something just before you do;
So they will have compassion when it's your turn to learn it too.

See, those little insinuations, those little hurtful taunts, could be;
Just what satan needs to cause someone already hurt more grief.
Without love you are nothing and your voice will not be heard;
Because you are just a noise without love, but so full of words.

 1 Corinthians 13:1 
Though I speak with the tongues of men
and of angels, and have not charity, I am 
become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

Job is pronounced Jobe
in the Bible

Job was sick and lost his family but never cursed God.
His friends felt he must had done something
wrong to be going through his suffering and great loss.
His friends added to his grief by casting judgement.
