While we rightly question the advice given Job by his friends, we also should acknowledge what they did well:
“And they sat with him on the ground seven days and seven nights, and no one spoke a word to him, for they saw that his suffering was very great.” (Job 2:13)
This is a poignant example of “Ministry of Presence.”
