Too often we question why bad things happen to good people. In John 9:1-3 Jesus answers this question for His disciples, 1 As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. 2 His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” 3 “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so the work of God might be displayed in his life.” Good and bad will happen to us all. In the light of eternity, these are temporary circumstances. We must all remember that God does not make bad things happen, but He sometimes allows it. When it does, we can choose to allow it to tear us down and everyone around us or we can use it to bring Him glory. The permanent good is coming, it just won’t be in this lifetime.
