What does the Bible say about lawsuits? How should we respond if we think we have been wronged?
Does the Bible have anything to say about dinosaurs? Did Job talk about them and how would he have known? Could the answer be plain?

 

Today’s Readings:
Job 39 & 40
Psalm 101.1-4
Proverbs 23.29-30:
1 Corinthians 6.1-20

 

Lawsuits, Dinosaurs & the Bible

 

Job 39 & 40:

Demanding Answers

 

Even though Job was a righteous man, he had, perhaps pridefully, believed he needed to understand what was happening and why? In this passage God opened his eyes to just how little he really understood. Job quickly acknowledged his mistake. Job 40:3-5:

Then Job answered the Lord and said: “Behold, I am vile; What shall I answer You? I lay my hand over my mouth. Once I have spoken, but I will not answer; Yes, twice, but I will proceed no further.”

 

The Bible & Dinosaurs

You might be surprised to learn that many believe the “behemoth” spoken about in this passage was a dinosaur. That means Job knew what dinosaurs were. The most likely explanation would be because they co-existed with people instead of living “millions and millions of years ago,” as we are taught as fact!

Question from Kathy:

(Note: Kathy gave me permission to post her question and my answer using only her first name.)

Good Morning Donna!

So, here’s the story up to my firing… I was employed up until Tuesday of last week. I have been having a lot of trials and persecution from my manager throughout my time of employment with this company… She and her favored employee have been watching every move that I make to see if I would make a big enough mistake to be fired over. And although I had been doing my best to remain faultless and truly focus on how Jesus would act in demonstrating peace, love, joy and kindness while he was being persecuted… I would keep reminding myself that I’m not working for man… but rather for The Lord. So after I was sick a couple of times and out due to a work related back injury… she was able to fire me.
