Bible Material: Job 42. DevetlonnJ Readlus: Pualm 34:14. i I 0 :7?,2: *:::rds;J most puzzling to all students of the book is its ending. Let us pick out ~u~ one of the difficulties and try to get some light on it. It is in what Go@ says about Job and his friends. The ~ri~nds are con- de ~aned, Job is prdiseck On the face of it, this does not seem to make sense. For God says to the friends, "You have not spoken of me what is Dr. Foreman right, as my serv- ant Job has." What makes that sound very odd is that through- out the drams the friends had nev- er once criticized God. but on the contrary defended him. Job on the other hand complains about God over and over again. Hd com- plains because he was born, in the first place. He feels he has been unfairly treated, and he wants God to explain himself. He complains that God will not come out and talk to him like a man. I-low can it be that Job "rpeaka of GOd what is right" whlle his friends do not? The Unanswered Quegdloun To solve this difficulty, $ome ~mdents of this book declare that what God means about "speaking right" does not refer to the whole debate between Job and his friends, but.only to Job's abject repentance (42: i-6). Job admits he was wrong'to pry into the se- crets of God, while his friends say not a word in the humility of wor- ship. This may be part of the solu- tion; but there may be another part of it which needs looking into. For one thing, the great ques- tion of the book remains unan- ~wered to the very last, Why do ~te righteous suffer? was the ques- ~Tbn. and in particular. Why does this gqod man Job suffer? ] I. ~':'hvisdom tha~ comes from God," consists in admitting that some questions, while not beyond God, are beyond us. Wisdom is not being able to answer all ques- tions. Wisdom is knowing the dif. terence between questions which can, and questions which can't, be answered so we can understand them. Sod Does Not Head Our Advloe Further, Job learns that wisdom does not consist in our getting so smart that we are equipped to offer God advice. Job had more than once, in debate with his friends, rather hinted that he could (if he were as mighty as God) ar- range and run this universe bet- ter, at some points, than God ar- ranges and runs it. But in Chap. 40 God says to him: "Shall a fault- finder contend with the Al- mighty?" and Job replies, "I am of small account . . . I lay my hand upon my mouth." And at the end he says "I despise myself, and repent . ." Nobody has or ever has had or ever will have enough wisdom to be on an Advisory Com- mittee for the Universe. God does not need idea-men, he has thought of all the good ideas there can be. When we pray, we are encouraged to make known our requests; but when a request becomes a com- mand, we put ourselves into the position of advising God--com- plete fools! Aeoepting 0od "My eye sees Thee," Job says. This is the wisdom that comes from contact with the Almighty, Not, "My mind understands Thee." Wisdom that comes from God does not consist in charts and diagrams of God's mind so that we can explain all he does and maybe even think ahead of him. Wisdom that is divine, wisdom that bears the stamp of God, be- gins when we accept God as God. This means that we accept the fact that he is God. He is not re- sponsible to us; he does not have to tell us why he does this or that, We are responsible to him, not he to us. Accepting God is not mere- ly acknowledging his will to be su- preme. It is failing in with his will, knowing that it is the will of supreme power and righteousness, It Job had been a Christian, he would have learned more than this. For a Christian accepts God as the "Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." And so he accepts God as Love. There is no higher wis- dom.
