“How could a God of love allow suffering?”
Sometimes when things don\’t go right in our lives we blame God, we get angry as if God is supposed to make everything perfect for us.
We can\’t avoid suffering, no matter how hard we try, no matter how much we run from it. So the question then becomes, what do we do about it when it comes? God clearly gives us our answer. Many people do not think to turn to God when things are going good, but often times, they will turn to him when they realize they do not have control over a situation. Prayer then, becomes a plea for help. However, God does not want us to come to him simply when we have problems. He wants us to come to him in the good times and the bad times. But the promise of Easter is not that everything will be perfect, but that He will aid, comfort and be our guide and salvation in an imperfect world. We saw a suffering God in Good Friday, but we see a God of glory in Easter.
