The earthquake in Haiti shouldn’t cause men to doubt the existence of God nor to question His goodness. God’s existence and His goodness is being seen from the actions of millions of souls who are going down to help and also giving of their money (1 John 3:16-18). This wonderful action exists because God taught man to help and care for fellow human beings (1 John 4:7; Galatians 6:2:10; Hebrews 13:16). Natural disasters have plagued man since the beginning and will continue to do so until the end of time. That is why men shouldn’t make the earth their home but should focus on heaven (Matthew 6:19-20).
So instead of saying things like, “If there is a God, why would He allow this?” , man needs to take the wonderful virtues that God has given and put those things into action by serving the needy and comforting those who need it. And remember, if bad things didn’t happen, none of us would have the chance to be a good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
