The Unresolved Story

Job seems to end without an definitive answer.  It SEEMS to end that way.  The truth is that it is resolved by allowing the reader to ask themselves, “Who am I in the presence of an almighty God.”  That is an easy question to feel good about asking, but it is not so easy a question to seek an answer.  Job found that he was royalty, but also that he was dust and ash.  A strange combination indeed.  Are you dust and ash?  Has the ministry of doing good grown weary?  Do your friends give you advice that just makes things worse even though their intentions are kind?  Rejoice, for it is in dust and ash that we realize a throne and the harvest is near for those who persevere.  See you Sunday as we dialogue with Job.  Chin up, Child of God!
