1. This past week, did you spend time with a friend, coworker, or family member who has been going through a dark time of suffering? If so, who, and how did that go?

2.  What challenges did you face last week?

Ask three people—two readers and one reteller—to help. Ask the two readers to read Job 27:1-6 one after the other (possibly from different Bible versions). Then ask the same two readers to each read Job 31:5, 6, 16-23.

Ask the third person to retell (not interpret) the story from these passages. (Keep it simple! About 60 seconds is all the time that’s needed.)

3. What main themes do you observe in these passages?

4. What, if anything, do you struggle with in these passages?

5. Let’s dig a little deeper into the details in these passages.

             – What words does Job use to describe his character?

             – What evidences do you see of Job’s character?

6. What do you learn about God through Job’s statements?        

7. What do these passages reveal to you about humanity?

8. What do you learn about living to please God?

9. What do these passages compel you to do to serve others, such as the poor and needy, the widows, and/or the fatherless, this week?

10. Based on these Scriptures and our discussion, complete this sentence: This week, I will . . .

11. What will be a challenge for you this week?

For next week: Sometime this week, read and reflect on Job 16:1-5, 15-21, and 6:12-17. You can also read next week’s supplemental texts as well as the Study and Application sections as part of your personal study.
