Job's God In a Box
I admit that I prefer an ordered world where right is always rewarded and where there is always retribution for wrong. This would be a world without chaos and confusion, but then again it would also be a world without mercy. There’s a part of me that wants to put God in a box so that life is predictable and, therefore, controllable. But this means I don’t really want God—I just want the box. Religion tries to hem God in and keep Him manageable. Job worshiped the true God, the God who does the unexpected. This is the God of the Bible. This is God who came and suffered with us; this is the God who hung on a cross and suffered for us.
His and yours,
