Is a loved one walking through a difficult time? We try so hard to say the right thing to comfort. We desperately want to say words that will take all of the pain away. Sometimes, our words aren’t enough and, perhaps, our words rub the wrong way. Mostly, the greatest comfort you can give is like that of Job’s three friends. No one said a word but they sat with him. Is there a friend in your life who could use your presence today?
Then they sat on the ground with him for seven days and nights. No one said a word to Job, for they saw that his suffering was too great for words.
~ Job 2:13 [NLT]
