“They sat down with him on the ground seven days and seven nights, and no one spoke a word to him, for they saw that his grief was very great.” Job 2:13. As we learn from the book of Job, people in grief do not always need words. Sometimes they need someone to sit silently with them, to listen when they need to speak, and to hug them when their sorrow turns to sobs. God may not intervene to change circumstances and He may not explain suffering, but He comforts us through the presence of other believers (Colossians 4:8). Listening may be the most loving and Christ-like thing you do today.
