Job: “I would speak to the Almighty.”

In today’s Daily Office reading (Job 12), Job says, in essence, I’d rather not hear any more interpretations of what the Almighty thinks. Let him speak for himself, and let me speak for myself. I’ll take full responsibility for the result and I certainly don’t need anyone else speaking to God on my behalf, or speaking for God to me.

If we could collect a nickel for every “God says…” statement from preachers and self proclaimed prophets this past Sunday, we could feed the hungry for a year.
