Why do bad things happen to good people? Maybe it’s because they are far better able to handle adversity than those whose connection to the Creator is tenuous. Maybe the righteous suffer not only because they can endure trials, but because their Redeemer wants to refine them for something eternal.

Isaiah 52:13-53:12; Matthew 25:14-30; Hebrews 12:4-11
