Our view is often clear. Or, we think it’s clear. But that doesn’t always have to be the case. We all have blind spots where things are hidden.
But Job was an exceptional case. God himself called him upright and blameless. Those are hefty credentials for anyone. But we as humans need to accept the fact that we are at the mercy of God. Job said “Though I am in the right, I cannot answer him; I must appeal for mercy to my accuser” (Job 9:15).
The higher you climb, the lower you’ve got to stoop. There’s no other way. That’s God’s way. We don’t have all the reasons for that, but that is the case.
It was at the end of his ministry and life that Jesus stooped low to wash his disciples’ feet. That’s the example that our Master set for us. How low should we stoop? Even to death?
