God and I Don’t See Eye-to-Eye
Life is not fair. There are many things that happen that seem to show that God favours some people and not others. Some are better looking. Some have greater opportunities. Some get born into wealth. Even when we look at the scriptures, we may quarrel with God about why he does certain things. He killed Ananias and Saphira. He allowed Peter to preach on the day of Pentecost – just after he had denied Jesus. He allowed Satan to harm Job’s life. When we judge things by our own wisdom and by the standards of the world, we can easily find things to disagree with God about. But when we realise that He knows all things and his ways are higher than our ways, we can trust him with our lives even when it doesn’t make sense.
