One of the most famous question that is being asked about is, why does God allow good people to suffer? My answer can be found in the Bible.
Ephesians 2 (CEV)
1In the past you were dead because you sinned and fought against God. 2You followed the ways of this world and obeyed the devil. He rules the world, and his spirit has power over everyone who doesn’t obey God. 3Once we were also ruled by the selfish desires of our bodies and minds. We had made God angry, and we were going to be punished like everyone else.
4-5But God was merciful! We were dead because of our sins, but God loved us so much that he made us alive with Christ, and God’s wonderful kindness is what saves you. 6God raised us from death to life with Christ Jesus, and he has given us a place beside Christ in heaven. 7God did this so that in the future world he could show how truly good and kind he is to us because of what Christ Jesus has done. 8You were saved by faith in God, who treats us much better than we deserve. [a] This is God’s gift to you, and not anything you have done on your own. 9It isn’t something you have earned, so there is nothing you can brag about. 10God planned for us to do good things and to live as he has always wanted us to live. That’s why he sent Christ to make us what we are.
We all sinned and went against God. We cannot brag our good works at all and the right question should be why do bad people prosper and succeed. God’s mercy is abundant and He just showed the greatest act of love, mercy and grace in this verse.
