Psalms: 112, 117

Meditation

Job: “I am a laughingstock to my friends; I, who called upon God and He answered me, a just and blameless man, I am a laughingstock.” (v. 4) These words bring me back to Jesus’ last night before He died. He was betrayed by a “friend”, taken by night, and judged in secret (illegal in Jewish law); false witnesses were called to testify against Him, He was spat upon, crowned with thorns, mocked, whipped and finally executed. Like, Job, Jesus did not cry out to God blaming Him. Both knew God was able to set everything straight again.
