Job 32

Elihu begins humbly, having waited until the elders have spoken.  But indignation and anger fuel his words and the rest of this chapter is only about him, his opinions and how he is going to speak. 

Poor Job.  I wonder what he is thinking about now.

Lord, You give words to comfort, give direction and make wise.  When You trust me with Your words, please help me be faithful in sharing them.  Let me focus on You and Your glory, Your purpose, Your grace and then on the one who will hear Your words.  Keep me out of this equation when I am responsible for passing on Your truth; yet, let me be transparent with my life when it is useful to Your plan.  Your truth not my opinion, Your words not my frustration, Your grace not my anger.
