Lessons of the Man of Uz


The Book of Job opens with the words, “In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil.” Despite this, he faced terrible loss, and had a crisis in faith.  He nonetheless refused to curse God for his misfortune.  He saw that God is good, even if our personal circumstances are not.

While I tend to create commentary within these blogs on the passages mentioned, today I intend only to share a brief recap of the story.  This simple animation is one I have used with my students, and it is very much a “I love it” or “I hate it” version. It is in the end a pretty good summary.  I do hope you get something from it.
