Why do so many bad things happen to so many good people? If a righteous God governs the universe, why is there so much unrighteous activity going on? And didn’t God say the righteous will be rewarded and the wicked punished? If so, then why is my life filled with so many difficulties and troubles? Does God even care?
Job is a nice guy who is doing pretty well for himself. He’s got a wife, some kids, and enough sheep on the farm to last a lifetime. And then suddenly, he loses it all. Does he whine and complain? No – he goes even further. He calls out God for letting all this misfortune happen to a righteous man. That’s right—Job calls God’s bluff.
So guess what – you are not the first person to ask, “Why Me?”
