McCheyne’s Bible Reading Plan: Ge 40, Mk 10, Job 6, Ro 10
He who withholds kindness from a friend
forsakes the fear of the Almighty. (Job 6:14)
I have too often seen people decide to quit involvements and throw generalized reasons, vaguely referring to sinful issues as they go. Others have just left because they feel that saying something wouldn’t change anything. This is part of what Job’s friends did to him. This is what elicits the above response from Job. Are we really ready to forsake the fear of the Lord out of our fear to face an uncomfortable situation?
