God and Evil

People have taught me that God created everything. So, I wonder, ?Did God create evil?? Recently I learned something that helped me understand the answer to this question.
Does cold exist? No, it does not. Cold is what happens when there is no heat. What about darkness? Darkness is what happens when there is no light. In the same way, evil is what happens when there is no love.
When we do not show love, evil happens. 1 Corinthians 13:1-2 tells that if we don?t have love, we have nothing. ?I may speak in different languages of men or even angels. But if I don?t have love, then I am only a noisy bell or a ringing cymbal. I may have the gift of prophecy; I may understand all the secret things of God and know everything; and I may have faith so great that I can move mountains. But even with all these things, if I don?t have love, then I am nothing.?
Jesus is coming back soon. I hope you will use every opportunity you have to share love. Then God?s kingdom on earth will grow.
