Job’s suffering creates questions, accusations and criticism from the four friends who had come to sit with Job to bring him comfort. The accusations made by the friends as to the reasons who Job is suffering, and the remedy to stop the suffering, are not in line which what God is doing. This situation demonstrates that we cannot judge the righteousness of another merely on the basis of their life situation.


Pressure is nothing new. James, the half-brother of Jesus, wrote to Jewish Christians in the first century who faced intense pressure. They had been dispersed because of persecution, and they faced increasing pressure to let faith live only in their heads instead of being evidenced in their lives. James beckoned these first believers to let pressure push them deeper in their journey with Jesus. Today, James invites believers to open their lives to the truth of God’s Word and learn how to have a practical faith as we deal with the pressure of Christian living.
