Job’s Friends Daily Calendar


Here’s another doozy I came across on Facebook. The creator clearly didn’t care that the speaker in this verse is Eliphaz, and that in the final chapter of the book, God is said to be angry with Eliphaz and his friends for not having spoken rightly.

I wonder whether I should be trying to get both sides of the market, creating a daily verse calendar exclusively quotes from Job’s friends on the one hand, and on the other hand, using my blog to highlight the problems with such a calendar.

Of related interest, I blogged once before about a similarly problematic calendar page, but with a quote from the Gospel of Luke, where the speaker in the original context ought to have made it even more obvious that the words did not belong on a Christian devotional calendar…
