Job was facing difficult times. He had lost his property, his children and he was sick. His wife’s advice? Kill yourself. End it all.

Job was taken aback that his wife would suggest this. She was supposed to be someone he could trust to give sound advice. Job immediately recognized that this wasn’t Godly counsel. He rebuked his wife and continued to praise God.

Sometimes people will fail us. They will give us bad advice. But God will never let us down. Be sure to confirm that the advice or opinions of others line up with the Word before you act on it.

Job 1:1-2:9
