in the character of God whose ways
you may not understand at the time.”
– Oswald Chambers
1. Is there a God?
2. If so, is God good?
How can we have confidence in the character of God?
That’s no small question. So I decided to ask my 15-year-old daughter.
“Simone, I know you believe in God, right?”
“So how do you know that God is good?” I asked.
At first, she looked at me like I was trying to ask her a trick question. “No, seriously,” I assured her, “I want to know what you think. Why do you believe that God is good?”
As if this were a no-brainer, she simply responds, “All the good in the world says that there is a God and He is good. If there were no God at all, or if He was not a good God, then all the bad that is in the world right now would be so much worse. Like, double worse.”
I couldn’t have said it any better.
