If you’re anything like me, you quickly get overwhelmed and even physically exhausted by story after story of evil happening in our world today. Previous generations lived without knowing the extent of evil worldwide while today our social media feed brings every encounter to our doorstep. It’s too much. Michelle and I talk about this often because we have enough examples of evil just through the people directly connected with us in life and what happens to them. Let alone the evil done across the globe.
It’s easy to lose sight of the goodness of Jesus in the midst of this. It’s even easy to doubt God’s sovereignty, although we rarely give words to those thoughts. Instead, we wonder why God continues to allow stuff like that. I read through Psalm chapter seven this week and found encouragement in the way King David addresses evil.
