Have Pity

To read the Bible in a year, read Job 19 and 20.
We know from the first two chapters of Job, that his suffering started with the loss of all his wealth and the workers tending that wealth. He also lost his ten children and then his health. In chapter 19, he listed all the relationships that he lost. Read especially verses 13-20. Then he makes this simple request. Here is all that he wants from his three friends.
“Have pity on me, have pity on me, O you my friends,
For the hand of God has struck me!”
(Job 19:21).
He knows that they cannot restore any of the things that he has lost, except for their supportive friendship. Therefore, when we see someone we love suffering immensely, let us remember this verse and show pity. It will go a long way toward truly helping that person.
