How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
(Psalms 36:7 ESV)
Life is not fair. One of the hardest humps for Christians to get over is the concept that there are no good deserving people on planet Earth. Bad things happen to people, but most people will lament when they see those who they perceive as “good” or “innocent” suffering. They want to know why “bad things happen to good people.” The hump that staggers us is that our perception of goodness being in people is a product of a flawed view of reality. When we seriously study the Bible we learn that no one is good, NO ONE! Jesus even told a person that only God was good. Instead of wondering why disaster comes upon “good people,” we should be asking why God didn’t simply wipe out the Human Race a long time ago. Those who refuse to believe or submit to this truth about people are under the influence of a wicked heart.
