Day 137 of the 1 Year Bible SOAP:
O: My how things have not changed…so often does man blame God in some karmic fashion for the tragic things that befall us.
A: I used to think this way, in this “God’s gonna get you (or him or them)” when I see bad behavior but when you think about it, if this were true, you wouldn’t even be reading this for we cannot do anything that is so pleasing to God that it will save us on our own.
P: Father God, I praise you for the trials, for the things that you use in this world, through us to glorify you and bring people closer to you. Please have your way with me, let your will be done so that your kingdom will flourish!
