So 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
Job just encountered the greatest lost of his life; seven children perished, all worldly possessions destroyed and sickness consumed his body from head to toe.
For some reason society believes that we should console one another through word or speaking politically correct words of condolences. Here we read how Job's friends consoled him during his grief - by sitting silent for seven days and seven nights.
Consider your friends and family grieving; opposed to words could you comfort them without speaking a word? Sit and meditate for one day or one hour.
