What happens when it seems like God is causing his people to suffer? Job’s story is one that might get us to answer that question. The story of Job is an amazing one and it has caused a lot of people to ponder how they relate to God. To catch you up, the book of Job describes the character of Job—a man of prominence and wealth—who lives in the Land of Uz. Since Job is so righteous and God is so praising of him, Satan, the main antagonist of the story, questions Job’s integrity. He argues that the only reason that Job is serving God is because Job has been blessed. God was protecting him, and so the Lord and Satan make a wager. Satan can take everything from Job—his children, wealth, and physical health—but his life. The goal was to see if Job would curse God and no longer live a righteous life.
