Why do bad things happen to good people?

How can a loving God allow His children to suffer? It’s a question that many people have wondered about.Β We can gain some answers by thinking aboutΒ theΒ purpose of lifeΒ on earth, theΒ role of Jesus Christ, and our eternal destiny.

To make us better

Moments of difficulty offer us opportunities to grow and learn. In the book of Isaiah, we read,Β β€œBehold, I have refined thee … I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction” (Isaiah 48:10). God wants us to becomeΒ the best version of ourselves. This can oftenΒ be painful, but some lessons can only beΒ learned by experience.

To teach us empathy

When we experience hard times, we learn how to have empathy for others.Β Having empathyΒ makes us more like Jesus Christ, our perfect example. Because Jesus suffered and died for all of our sins, He perfectly understands what we’re going through and how to help us.

Due to the poor choices of others

God gives each of His children the ability to choose between right and wrong. Unfortunately, some people choose to do bad things that cause innocent people to suffer. But God has promised that suffering will not last forever. In the New Testament, we read that after this life, β€œGod shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away” (Revelation 21:4). All that is unfair about life will be made right through Jesus Christ.
