I was talking with friends last night and the conversations came around to questioning why God lets bad things happen to good people. This morning as I read a devotional by John Maxwell, it seemed timely and helped put the conversation into perspective:
Driving the 469 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway is an explorer’s delight. From northern Virginia to the Tennessee-North Carolina border, there are wonders around every bend in the mountainous road. You may see wildlife, a pioneer cabin, gorgeous vistas, a country church, a stream or waterfall — the beauty never ends. The Parkway is not for the hurried; it is for the expectant — those eager for new experiences and discovery.
