Goodness of God

Shall We Accept Good from God and Not Trouble?

Shall We Accept Good from God and Not Trouble?

Let’s back up to the beginning—to the most oft-quoted verse from the book. After the disasters strike, his wife tempts him to curse God and die, suggesting that all of his religious practice and integrity have amounted to nothing. Job replies, “‘Shall we accept good from God and not trouble?’ In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.” (Job 2:10 NIV)
