Sowing and Reaping

Eliphaz spoke some truth, but he either misapplied it to Job or had some other problem. Eliphaz said to Job,
“Even as I have seen,
Those who plow iniquity
And sow trouble reap the same.”
(Job 4:8)
Eliphaz continued to say that the lions, representing Job, although once fierce, God humbled greatly (Job 4:9-11). While those things can be true, they did not speak of Job, for he had not plowed iniquity, but he suffered for other reasons.
Be careful with how you handle God’s word and people’s lives.
