Looking back, what I thought were moments where my dreams were crushed and my life was falling apart, I now see things were really falling into place. I thought it was tragedy. As it turns out, succeeding in those plans would have been the real tragedy...Because God had a better plan.
Sin takes something away, never to return. It only leaves behind a hole, an unquenchable thirst, an unshakable desire. You have now become its slave…and one day it will choose to destroy you.
If we can conclude that evil is objective, we are still left with the question of what do we do with this objective evil?
Why will understanding morality help provide a view of objective evil, and therefore point us toward the existence of God? Because, as Lewis put it, most people’s objections to God come from their own idea of fairness and justice.
People believe in evil. If subjective evil cannot be proven or provide a sufficient answer, then we must turn to an objective view of evil. If the process of evolution or nature itself cannot explain the evil that is present, we must look elsewhere outside of both science and nature.
All throughout the Bible we see God working “all things for the good of those who love Him.” “All things” means evil, as well.
If we worry about our future, we are letting time pass us by; valuable time that we won’t get back. However, if we can cast worry aside, we can watch day by day as God molds us into the people He intends for us to be, prepared for the future He has prepared for us.
