It’s natural to wonder why bad things happen to good peopleβ€”or for that matter, why good things happen to bad people.

Why would God, who is just, allow that?

Questions like these are explored through the experience of Job, one of those good people to whom bad things happened.

Because of Job’s trials, his friends wondered if he was really good after all.

Job asserted his own righteousness and wondered if God is really just after all. But despite his suffering and wondering, Job maintained his integrity and faith in Jesus Christ.

In the book of Job, faith is questioned and tested but never completely abandoned. That doesn’t mean that all of the questions are answered.

But the book of Job teaches that until they are answered, questions and faith can coexist, and regardless of what happens in the meantime, we can say of our Lord, β€œYet will I trust in Him” (Job 13:15).
