Scripture Lesson: Job 34:10

On this date in 1984, with the Tigers leading 5-4 in the 8th inning of Game 5 of the World Series Kirk Gibson hits his second home run, a three run shot into the upper deck, putting the game out of reach and giving the Tigers their fourth World Championship. Padres manager Dick Williams had ordered his pitcher to intentionally walk Gibson, but Goose Gossage convinced his skipper he could get Gibson out. Gossage was proven wrong two pitches later.

In our Scripture verse today, Elihu reminds Job and his other friends that God does not do wrong. Old Testament thought was when a person did good, God blessed them and when bad things happened to people it was because of their sin. Job had lost his children, his wealth, and his health. Job’s so called friends remind him it must be because of his sin. We know that bad things can and often do happen to good people. Even in the midst of a warped theology Elihu makes a great point….God does no wrong. May we be very careful not to blame God when bad things happen, may we just rely upon Him!

1. Does God make mistakes? Why or Why not?

2. What happens when we make mistakes? Do we take the blame or do we try to deflect the blame on others?

3. Why does God want us to realize that He is always there for us?

Goose Gossage made a mistake when he pitched to Kirk Gibson and Gibson hit the mistake into the upper deck. We can be assured today that God does not make mistakes and he is always there for us.
