She asks the same question over and over and over again.
She’s been asking since she was five.
“If God is good, why did He let evil into the world? Why did He create Satan?”
We have listened to her and talked through this question several times over the years, but it keeps coming back. We have told her that while we can do our best to answer and understand the world around us and God and His Word and good and evil, there are some things we can’t fully understand or answer on this earth.
Heaven abounds with answers and enlightenment, but here, we stumble a bit in the dark still.
She nods as though she understands. But then a few months later, the question comes up again. She’s stuck on it. It’s a question she will have to wrestle out with God over the years.
We all have things we get stuck on, things we can’t wrap our minds around or understand, and it can drive us crazy, if we let it.
