Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His love endures forever.
1 Chronicles 16:34
If God is Really Good, why would he allow these things to happen?
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
James 1:17
If God exists why is their evil in the world?
As things are now, everything is up for grabs. Nevertheless napalming babies is bad. Starving the poor is wicked. Buying and selling each other is depraved….There is in the world such a thing as evil. All together now: Sez Who? God help us.
Arthur Allen Leff Unspeakable Ethics, Unnatural Law
We cannot know what good is without God.
1. If God exists, then God is perfect
2. If God is perfect, then God is all-powerful (omnipotent), all-knowing (omniscient), and all good (omnibenevolent).
3. If God is all 3, then there is no evil.
1. If God exists, then there is no evil.
2. But there is evil.
3. Therefore, God does not exist.
The Greater Good
Being able to hold the existence of God and the existence of evil and suffering together depends a lot on who you believe Jesus to be.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Romans 8:28
In Christ, you are loved. In Christ, you have the capacity to love even the world that makes you nervous. That’s because in Christ, you have a perfect love that casts out all fear.
“The greater your knowledge of the goodness and grace of God on your life, the more likely you are to praise Him in the storm.”
Matt Chandler
I’m thinking about so many of my friends who are hurting this morning and God’s word that says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” Grace doesn't give us what we want. Grace gives us God, and that’s
always what we most need. The place where the power of God will be revealed in our lives is precisely the place we’ve judged to be inadequate. Every thorn is an invitation to discover more of the grace of God, a means of giving us His power. And no one understands power without bearing a thorn. (2 Cor. 12:1-10).

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."Malachi 3:10
