It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Reflection on Job 7:11-21

Job has pled with his friends to rescue him, "Tell me what you think I've done wrong. I am innocent. Rescue me." (6:22-30).

Dissatisfied, disappointed, Job is ready to give up. Death would be better than the life he has now. God has deserted him. In despair, he says to God, "What have I done to deserve this? Whatever it is, forgive me so this punishment can end and I can just die."
