Is God Really Good?
I once overheard a conversation between two moms in a church parking lot. One asked the other about her son who had been seriously ill. The mother of the boy replied exuberantly, “God is good!” She went on to explain how he had recovered. Now I was sincerely thrilled for this family, but what if the boy had not recovered? Would God still be good? Would this mom still be able to say those words so exuberantly? This incident happened years ago when my grief was still very fresh
