Mrs. Job--Lessons from Secondhand Suffering
Job lost his family, his estate, his friends, his health, and his reputation in a matter of hours. But he isn’t the only person who suffered in this story. Behind the scenes his wife also lost her kids, her home, her reputation, and her security. Mrs. Job only makes a brief appearance in Job 2:9-10, but it’s enough to open our eyes to the silent and lonely pain experienced by secondhand sufferers.
