People ask, “If God is so good and powerful, then why is there so much evil in the world?” To which, I respond, “Well, why is there so much love, generosity, and sacrifice in a world that seems to thrive on selfishness, looking out for number one?”
Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand (Job 38:4, NIV)
As parents we want our children to choose to love us and simply benefit from our love for them! They have their own choices to make, but we desire that they choose to benefit from our love and our sacrifices for them. God our Father, who made all men from one man, wants and has set us up to seek Him and find Him and benefit from what He has done for us!
“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else. From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. (Acts 17:24-26, NIV)
