Rod Suderman spoke about how we expect life to be predictable and ordered by the seasons of life, but when the unexpected happens, we grasp for an explanation. From the friends in the Book of Job, we learned that quoting moralistic scripture verses can be a cold comfort. Instead, we should be quiet and present with our friends in their suffering. When life doesn’t seem fair, it’s not our place to¬†demand an explanation from the God who made the monsters of land (Behemoth) and sea (Leviathan). Until all of creation is redeemed, calamities will continue to afflict the innocent in our chaotic world. In the meantime, we can look forward to justice in the end by walking with Immanuel (God with Us) through our dark valleys. [KH]
