Resource for the Week - April 12-18
Today's resource is from a great ministry called Explore God. It's a reflection on why God allows suffering, one of the most challenging theological and philosophical questions that exists. In the grand story that God is telling he has chosen to allow us free will, and using that freedom we have made choices that introduced death and destruction to our world. But scripture also reveals God as one who is abounding and love, full of compassion, and slow to become angry. It tells us that God has a plan to fix everything that is broken, and that Jesus is at the center of that plan. I think our ultimate comfort comes from believing that we serve a God who is both all powerful and totally committed to our good.
