Do Bad Things Happen?
When the devil came up to Eve and encouraged her to eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge, he infected her with thoughts (seeds) of doubt. The devil has infected the whole world through this - God created people to be good but however we try, sometimes we wind up doing bad things.
So why doesn't God make us behave "right", or keep us from hurting ourselves or others, or take us out of circumstances that hurt us?
God made each of us unique. Look at a flower garden. Visualize the different colours of the flowers, the shapes and sizes of the plants. Breathe in the different perfumes. Look at even one kind of flower, say the rose (I love roses). Each rose has its own characteristics - its colour, shape, perfume, time it blooms, etc. - all of these things make it different to the next rose, but make it unique and special to the gardener who tends it.
So if we are so special to Him how come bad things happen?
Why doesn't God keep us from getting hurt?
God did this He would NOT be letting us be us - letting us "do our own
is there with us in all things that we go through, whether we choose wisely
or not. I'm glad my Father in Heaven chose to make me like this - that
I can choose how to live, even choose to follow Him or not.
