“Now when Job’s three friends heard of all this evil that had come upon him, they came each from his own place, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite. They made an appointment together to come to show him sympathy and comfort him. And when they saw him from a distance, they did not recognize him. And they raised their voices and wept, and they tore their robes and sprinkled dust on their heads toward heaven. And they sat with him on the ground seven days and seven nights, and no one spoke a word to him, for they saw that his suffering was very great.”
This past Friday was the tragedy that took place in Paris. It was horrific and heartbreaking. And it is a time where around the world there have been #PrayersForParis. It is a time to mourn and comfort with those in Paris. And sometimes all we can do is come alongside those who are mourning and sit with them and give a shoulder to cry on and weep with them.
Whether it’s those on the other side of the world or those that are next door, we need to pray for those who are mourning. We need to comfort those who are hurting. And we are to trust God will help us to have the right words to say when the time comes to speak & give glory to Him through all times.
