Job 40:8 (HCSB)

Would you really challenge My justice?
Would you declare Me guilty to justify yourself?

Such a contemporary question!  Modern man is happy to judge God—whom he do not believe in—guilty of any number of offenses in order to justify his own sin and rebellion.  The thinking goes something like this: “if I can prove that God is unjust, then I can live any way I want.  He has no claims on me” [even though I say I don’t believe in him].
How foolish we are to do this.  It is like clay saying to the potter that he has no clue how to make pottery!  Unthinkable, and yet this is often the way that we approach The Lord.
Job was wrong to do it.  We are wrong to do it.
