Job 36:1-4  Elihu continued speaking: “Let me go on, and I will show you the truth. For I have not finished defending God! I will present profound arguments for the righteousness of my Creator. I am telling you nothing but the truth, for I am a man of great knowledge.” (NLT)

If someone has to convince you how intelligent or spiritual, or both, he is, maybe he’s not as accomplished as he thinks he is. Take care around powerful egos. They can be explosive. 

This is a good reminder today as the auxiliary meetings related to the Southern Baptist Convention begin here in New Orleans. It is helpful as I observe the goings on. It is also helpful in shaping what I choose to think, respond, and say. 

Since I slept through my alarm, I will count my lessons learned and prepare for the day. Elihu will be my guide for what not to do or say.

I will listen far more than I speak, and I will pray far more than I argue.

Our Father, thank you for Elihu’s role model regarding what not to do. Give me ears to hear what you say to me today. Give me a willing and obedient heart to do what you ask. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
