(This note is taken from a booklet published by RBC Ministries. I feel blessed after reading this so I decided to type it back and share it).
Why is there pain and suffering?
televisions show harrowing pictures of famine and starvation in the
Third World. The radio announces another international conflict on the
verge of breaking out. The local newspaper carris the sad news of
another life scarred by violence and abuse. Neighbours tell of friends
who lost their battles with cancer. Suffering seems to be everywhere,
and it raises lots of emotions and questions.
