Responding to Bad Counsel

By Charles R. Swindoll


Job 4–7

Not all advice is good advice—not even when the one who gives the advice thinks it’s the right advice. Sometimes it is given in all sincerity, but it is still faulty. Job’s first friend, Eliphaz, started the first cycle of dialogue, where all three friends would “take turns” advising Job. Eliphaz moved pretty quickly from comforting to preaching . . . to accusation. Then Job responded, first to his friend and then to the Lord. This is a good place to learn a few lessons of what not to do from Eliphaz and, after that, some lessons of what to do from Job.
