Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

“Why is our life more a vale of tears than a garden of delight? … Much has been written about this apparent paradox, and the conclusion is not an easy one: if God is loving and wishes the best for us, then perhaps His plan is not the same as our plan…Have you learned more about yourself when things were going well, or when you were faced with challenges, frustrations, and suffering? … As much as we would like to avoid those experiences, without them would we not be shallow, self-centered creatures who would ultimately lose all sense of nobility or striving for betterment of others?” (pp. 45-46)
