Why Isn’t Our World Perfect?

 earthcredit

Do you ever wish we lived in a perfect world?  Where everyone was happy and polite?  Things went your way?  No sickness, war, or death?

That sounds pretty good to me!

After all… Why would a perfect God create an imperfect world?  Knowing full well that Adam and Eve would screw up and the Devil would rebel?

Did you ever think the God made an imperfect world for us?

Just think…

If there were no evil there would be no:
  • Compassion
…Needs suffering.
  • Courage
…Requires real danger.
  • Forgiveness
…Mending of relationships and rising above.
  • Generosity
…Giving to the needy and blessing others.
  • True Love
…Taking chances and risking heartbreak.
So take advantage of our imperfect world today and be someone’s hero!

Five years ago my little sister had bladder cancer.  Through that trial and unfairness we met many “heroes.”  That was a hard year and a half for all of my family and many people blessed us by their generosity and compassion.



The Make a Wish Foundation granted Anna’s wish for a horse.  This wonderful foundation works to help children grant their wishes to give them hope in a situation that may seam hopeless.

Among the many generous events Anna was able to partake in, she also got to participate in a children's cancer pageant.  Pageant teens from across Wisconsin put together a special event to honor these beautiful children.  Everyone got an award and it greatly helped to boost the confidence of these kids when they needed it most.

“Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”
Colossians 3:12

 

Have a heroic Sunday!   :)
