An Interesting Question

"Do Good Things Happen To Good People?"

There's a Chinese saying that goes: "Good things happen to good people" ( 好人有好報 )

What do you think about this statement?

Bad News / Good News

Like most sayings there’s some truth in it, but you only need to think for a moment to realise that it’s not entirely true. No matter how good you are, bad things could still happen to you. It’s part of life in this world.

The Bible has an answer to this problem, which involves some good news and some bad news. Let’s do the bad news first (but don’t stop reading- the good news is really good!)

Here it is: you are not good. No one is. Many of us try, but we cannot get rid of the bad parts completely. We can only ignore them, or cover them up, or convince ourselves that they’re not really that bad, at least compared to other people.

What's the good news? Something very good has happened to bad people. God has been good to us.

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

This is the good news of Jesus. Not that good things happen to good people, but that a good God has been good, even to bad people.
