Through His Son we have examples, teachings and laws to live by. Even so He allows us free will to run our lives as we wish, and when we fall, or are in pain, He is there to bandage our wounds. No questions asked. Now that is love. God will never abandon us. Never. Period. End of story. Humans call them ‘bad things’ because they are painful. Pain is part of life. Pain is a gift from God to help us live better lives. Comments are closed.
