The classic question: Why do bad things happen to good people.
In my own attempt to be intellectual, emotionally sensitive, theologically adept and “kia” (Know-It-All), I tried to answer this in many instances. But, here are 3 realities that I realized with this irony:
1. I really don’t know the answer.
I don’t want to pretend that I know.
2. God is also sovereign, in charge and in control.
Whew, I thank God that He is and that He sees a much bigger picture than what I see in my front view mirror.
3. God works for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28)
Clearly, we are not spared from tragedies, illnesses, and other adverse life circumstances. But, in any of them, GOD is working for His people’s good.
I guess the real, logical and practical question is…who is working for our good?
