Signs from Heaven to Earth. The question why do bad things happen to good people comes from an over exaggeration of our own goodness. We’ve placed ourselves miles too high on the Scale of Good. You know you better than anyone so it’s not a surprise to know that you’re not really that good at all. And if you are, it’s grace at work in you. From the Rainbow to the Cross there’s a covenant supplying you with goodness and mercy that’s totally disproportionate to the altar you find yourself upon. If you look to the covenant and not yourself you’ll find so much of God your life will never be the same.
