Tricolour CrossOn a day when many will be asking “Why?” we look at the Book of Job’s answers to both find comfort but also be better equipped to care for others.

O God, creator of all things, help us to trust you in the midst of the changes and chances of this fleeting world, and equip us to comfort those who suffer, following the example of Christ Jesus who fully entered into our pain and suffering, and now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. 16:24
Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. 12:18
When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise. 10:19
Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue. 17:28
Better is open rebuke than hidden love. Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. 27:5-6
An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips. 24:26
Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out. 17:14
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. 15:1
Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife. 21:9
He who covers over an offense promotes love, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends. 17:9
Like one who seizes a dog by the ears is a passer-by who meddles in a quarrel not his own. 26:17
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. 1:7
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. 3:5-6
