When We Don’t Have an Answer

As Christians, sometimes we like to pretend like we have an exact answer for every problem or situation. We want to help alleviate someone’s suffering, so we try to come up with a reason for it, to explain it, to help bring comfort.

But sometimes, we just don’t have an answer for why things happen, and that’s OK.

On this episode of WALK THRU VOICES, Michael Gunnin takes us through the Book of Job–talking about Job, his three friends, and the compassion of just being present in someone’s grief and despair.  Job’s friends sat with him for seven days and seven nights without saying a word, “because they saw how great was Job’s suffering.” They were simply present. We can understand the power of saying, “I don’t know.”
