“Job’s friends saw God as a curmudgeon, a miser, a traffic cop with a radar gun and a ticket quota. They misrepresented God, who is actually rich in mercy, grace, joy and every other good and perfect gift. He is a big, big spender.
God restored Job ‘twice as much as before.’ Twice as much! Before, he was the wealthiest guy in the area. Then he went from just bling to bling-bling. [ ] These blessings could never make up for the loss. One child can’t simply be replaced by another. But they testify to God’s grace and generosity in the midst of a horrible trial.”
