God is Good

I am a deaf man from the country of Chad. I am now a student living in Cameroon. I am part of a church for deaf people. There are hearing people in the church, too.
One day a hearing woman gave birth to a baby girl. Later the woman found out that her daughter was deaf. This woman was very upset. She blamed God that her daughter was deaf. After that, the woman did not pray or come to church any more.
Verse 17a of our Bible Reading today says, “Everything good comes from God. Every perfect gift is from him. These good gifts come down from the Father who made all the lights in the sky.” Everything that is good is from God, but God does allow bad things to happen to us. These bad things happen because our world is not perfect. Because of sin, there is sickness, suffering and death in the world.
Remember that only good things come from God. Don’t blame God for the bad things that happen to you. Instead, praise and thank Him. Then let God use you to show good to other people.
