Why do bad things happen to good people?
TROUBLE, TROUBLE DOUBLE TROUBLE
I have asked myself this question a million times, why do bad things happen to good people? When it happens, why do some people always ask:
- Is there sin in your life?
- What did you do that you are being so severely punished?
- God wants to teach you something?
- There must be a curse on your life.
Or if they do not ask me that, they would just kind of tell you that your faith is not strong enough.
Really!! Is that the best that we can do? Sometimes life happens, and we make bad choices – we make bad choices. The Lord had nothing to do with it, He just allowed us to do what we wanted to do.
I know that there are times when all the above are true, definitely! More often than what we care to admit, we followed our own plans and our own dreams.
I wonder if we pass the scene of an accident and there is blood all over and the people are really hurt, do we first asses them and asked…. what did you do? Did you have a drink or two? Were you speaking on your cell phone? Oh no, we will get them to the hospital and treat them asap and if they need therapy, we will support them. But because we do not see the scares and people are going through a desert emotionally or are really having marriage trouble or whatever emotional traumas we want to name them…. but we want to sidestep the issue and because the injury is not physically we ask all the above questions sometimes bringing our friends under condemnation.
