FINDING MEANING FROM OUR SUFFERING
Life’s Challenges Can Be Tough to Understand
As you go through the ups and downs of life and see injustice and chaos in this world, the idea that “life is not fair” is bound to cross your mind. It can be challenging to reconcile the evil influences and events around us when we believe a loving, benevolent God reigns over this world. You may be wondering about God’s role in this grand plan. However, one important consideration is that in Creation, God shared His power with humans by giving us the power of free will. This means that we have a choice to do good or evil.
UNDERSTANDING GOOD OR EVIL
We Have the Power to Choose
Based on the book of Genesis, when the first humans, Adam and Eve, chose to disobey God, they chose a pattern that led humankind down a long road of struggle. Today, we still have the power to do good or evil. Every choice we make has the potential to impact our children, our communities, and our world. As we work, play, and build relationships, the small choices we make often snowball to make a greater impact. We can choose the legacy we hope to make every day.
