Encourage and Strengthen Others With Kind Words

Encourage and Strengthen Others With Kind Words

A counselor’s words should strengthen others

16:4, 5

  • Job felt depressed and anguished, so he needed support and encouragement from others

  • Job’s three companions said nothing to comfort him. Rather, they made accusations and added to his anxiety

Bildad’s unkind words caused Job to cry out in distress

19:2, 25

  • Job cried out to God for some type of relief—even death

  • Job focused on his hope in the resurrection and continued to endure faithfully
