The book of Job answers one of the most common and important questions: Why do the righteous suffer? Thankfully, God places high priority on answering this question by giving 42 chapters of Scripture to walk us through both the questions and the answers regarding suffering.

The book of Job also explains what we ought to learn about suffering. Job teaches us that we ought not to be presumptuous as we counsel our friends who are suffering. It is clear that through Job’s suffering, God was doing something very different than what Job’s friends thought.
