Here’s a unique perspective on Job’s Wife I shared over on my church’s blog a few weeks ago.
What do you think? Truth or tripe?
Job’s wife gets a bum deal from most people.
Don’t raise your eyebrows at me. Seriously, she faced all the same trials as Job and people don’t cut her any slack.
Why is that?
Mrs. Job had a bad day. A very bad day. She might have been sewing or cooking or sweeping out the house when the messengers came bearing tidings of distress.
The beasts of burden? All stolen. Fire from the sky burned up all the sheep? Wait. It’s almost shearing season. What about wool and mutton this year?
Those camels? Stolen! They carried trading goods to the nearest city. All of those things were gone and now no way to transport anything else. What else is left to trade?
Her jaw dropped. She dug at her ears. She couldn’t have heard the servant right.
