Seeing the Glory of God
Rev. Hardy H. Kim

The painful things that happen to us are not punishments for our misbehavior, nor are they in any way part of some grand design on God’s part. Because the tragedy is not God’s will, we need not feel hurt or betrayed by God when tragedy strikes. We can turn to Him for help in overcoming it, precisely because we can tell ourselves that God is as outraged by it as we are.

—Rabbi Harold S. Kushner, When Bad Things Happen to Good People
