“Then Zaphar the Naamathite answered and said, . . .
‘Do you not know this of old,
Since man was placed on earth,
That the triumphing of the wicked is short
And the joy of the hypocrite is but for a moment‘.” Job 20:1,4-5
Zaphar gave a good speech on the wicked, but Job wasn’t wicked.
Lord, please help us forgive friends and family when they accuse us, knowing it is truly the accuser of the brethren speaking through them. And here’s a simple poem . . .
Where We Are At
Satan is a liar
there’s no end to what he’ll do
to deceive and discourage us
trying to tear us away from You
even to speaking
through friends and family
but nothing can change Whose we are
and where we’re at, eternally.
