In his second trial, huge and painful sores spread over Job’s body, but he continues to be loyal to God, in spite of his own wife suggesting to curse God for his suffering. Hearing of his illness, Job is visited by his friends and they convey their advice. It is at this point where Job curses God, as he cannot handle his pain or his friends and their beliefs that his sin is what is causing his suffering and that he must repent in order to be saved. After all of this, God then presents himself to Job in a storm, in awe
Lastly, Edgar’s crucial act of mercy led to his father Gloucester reaching an epiphany, that he was wrong by trusting Edmund. All three topics are relevant within Act IV and show how mercy is a critical aspect to life. I believe that mercy highly outweighs justice; mercy is the single most important quality to humankind which brings out peace. Whereas justice leads to an ongoing cycle of violence where nothing can get solved First, the mercy that King Lear willingly shows to Cordelia restores relationships. He openly states mercy towards Cordelia and says: “You do me wrong to take me out o’th’ grave: Thou art a soul in bliss; but I am bound Upon a wheel of fire, that mine own tears Do scald like molten lead” (IV vii 45-47) This statement portrays how Lear admits that he was wrong in the past.
Job 4: 7-21 is taken from Eliphaz’s speech to Job. After undergoing immense suffering for no apparent reason, Job curses his life and birth and seeks comfort from his friends. Although Job is a good and holy man, Eliphaz states that suffering is the result of sin. He is implying that Job’s suffering is a result of a sinful life, although we already know the true reason for his pains. In verse 7, “Think now, who that was innocent ever perished, or were the upright cut off?”, Eliphaz basically says that the good do not suffer.
Comparison: Everyman and The Second Shepherd’s Play Everyman and The Second Shepherds' Play both deal with the idea of redemption. They remind the reader that good deeds are important. They also reinforce the idea that we must shun material concerns to be redeemed. The world is imperfect, and the only way we can make ourselves perfect and worthy of redemption is by not worrying about our material well being and performing good deeds. Everyman places his faith in material things, his friends, relatives and goods.
He would risk your feelings of friendship towards him to try and save your life. But I don’t need to explain again how much he does love you. Through out the film, the director showed you in terrible conditions, to the point that I almost don’t doubt your decision of suicide. You were small, had a terrible daily routine, a dad in prison, and no mother, but you do have a
Some times history makers feel that life is full of unfriendliness that may remind them of the history role models that in this situation they could find God as the best friend. Some times we feel that our mysterious creator likes to test his believers with such a harsh unfriendly situation that if they can find the best friend that is actually him self and then family members. There is an old advice that pray even for your enemies, but on the other hand we have some brutal enemies like wild animals that if we pray or forgive them everyday, they just get worse that God
The professor’s observations reveal that while Captain Nemo shows passive respect to God as the Creator of the natural world, he doesn't have true faith in The Creator nor revealed religion. Rather, he rebels against natural and man made law, and ultimately rejects human society, seeking revenge against humanity for perceived wrongs. The evidence that Captain Nemo respects God as the Creator is replete. Captain Nemo values the lives of those he holds dear, such as when he cried after his crew member died or when he saved the life of the pearl diver. In mourning and saving life, Captain Nemo showed a certain gratefulness for God’s creations.
In a world that is filled with such things as hate, war, terrorists, genocide, starvation, etc., goodness can be challenging. I believe that all too often we think of being good as a list of things we mustn’t do, but to be our brother’s keeper goes above and beyond that concept. It means, as the Bible says, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” I believe “neighbor” means all human beings. The people of Le Chambon believed that too, they carried out both the positive and negative moral injunctions. Most people will never have to face the same challenges as the people of Le Chambon, but still, it’s a core part of what it means to be morally responsible.
Morrie deteaches himself so that he can accept these predicaments in his life and so that he will be able to embrace his deathe easier since he’s well aware that it’s approaching. A quote Morrie constantly refers is to “Love each other or die”. He stresses this quote and major theme in the novel because he feels that an abundance of love and compassion is the highest sense of fulfillment that one can experience; especially because Morrie had such a significant lack of both love and compassion throughout his childhood. Love is so crucial to Morrie as he is nearing his final days of life because he feels that without the care of those who love him, he would perish. Morrie is not afraid of dying, however
7 Ways to Overcome the Fear of Failure The fear of failure is perhaps the strongest force holding people below their potential. In a world full of uncertainty, a delicate economy, and countless misfortunes that could happen to anyone, it’s easy to see why most people are inclined to play it safe. But playing it safe has risk as well. If you never dare to fail your success will have a low ceiling. Most people underestimate their merit and ability to recover from failure, leading them to pass up valuable opportunities.
