Kari and I love getting together with our churches and their people to grow and learn together. Pastors Claude and Deloris Roberts we wonderful hosts! The fellowship was great!

TLC Bible reading today is Job 34. Elihu speaks strong and bold rebukes to Job. He accuses Job of "Thirsting for irreverent talk," spending time with evil men, says that Job speaks out of ignorance, he deserves the maximum penalty for the wicked way he has talked, accuses him of adding rebellion to his sin, of showing no respect to God and of speaking many angry words to God.
Elihu was bold and confident but he was wrong. How many times are we sure, aggressive, confrontational and accusatory ... but wrong? How many times do we add to someone’s pain rather than comfort and relieve them? We think our strong words will fix the person or the situation, and we feel better for having said them ... but we are like Elihu, saying irrelevant words that only make things worse.
We need to have God's heart, not just words. We need His Spirit to lead us and guide us. 2 Cor 3:6 tells us "... the letter kills but the Spirit brings life." Sometimes we need to speak strong words, other times we need to comfort and support. The Holy Spirit can lead and guide us to say the right things at the right times. Don’t speak from your spirit, speak from the Holy Spirit. ... See more
TLC Bible reading today is Job 33. The youth of Elihu is seen in the using of many words to say little and the pride by which he says them. He thinks he is saying new and wiser words but they are the same old tired words the others have already expressed. They say Job is wrong, obviously sinning and if he would just repent God would bless him. They condemn Job for maintaining his innocence and suggesting God is punishing an innocent man. Elihu is just getting started, his accusations against Job will get much sharper and condemning. Trying to fix someone by loading them with guilt trips and condemnation doesn’t usually work out real well. Job needed comforters and supporters. I wonder if our family members and friends need more comfort and support rather than accusations and condemnation too? ... See more
