Studying the Scriptures
Do activities A and B as you study Job 40–42.
Say It in Your Own Words
Write Job 42:5 in your own words, then write a paragraph that tells what you think Job may have meant when he said what he did.
What Did He Learn?
What do you think Job came to understand through his experience? Before you answer, consider the following questions and statement:
When did Job get relief from his trials? What changed first, things outside of Job or inside of him?
Elder Richard G. Scott said: “I testify that you have a Heavenly Father who loves you. I witness that the Savior gave His life for your happiness. I know Him. He understands your every need. I positively know that as you accept Their will without complaint, They will bless and sustain you” (in Conference Report, Oct. 1995, 21; or Ensign, Nov. 1995, 18).
