Mostly we live in a broken & fallen world Bad stuff happens - not always our specific fault But that's what I had to learn in business school is that it's always our fault - if we had anticipated better it could have been avoided. There is evil Why not me? True, but sometimes it seems like it is always me. Sometimes God is testing or refining us Yeah, I don't enjoy that. God disciplines those that he loves Always we have an option to grow (or not) What are we learning? Choose to grow up James 1:2-4 Hold onto integrity Job 1:13-22, Job 2:9 Ask God what am I learning about You? About myself? Am I more like Jesus is/through this? How do You want me to respond? Matthew 5:14-16
