The Mobile Phone

by Berni Dymet 
 
I Cor. 1:18 For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

A good friend of mine - Graham and I, were at a conference recently.  And we're sitting there in the middle of a presentation and I managed to spill my glass of water all over the table.

He leans over and says - "Don't worry- this morning I dropped my mobile phone down the toilet."

We both smiled. 

But it got me thinking - here's this guy - one of the nicest people you'll ever meet.  He's given his life to serving God all around the world.  And yet, God lets him drop his mobile phone down the loo.

Have you ever wondered - why does God let that stuff happen?

In fact so often it's a lot worse, when bad things happen to good people.  It just doesn't seem fair does it?  I don't have any glib answers.

But then, God let His Son die on a cross.  It was brutal.  And it wasn't fair.  I sure would like to know sometimes why God let's these things happen - but when I look at that cross - I thank God He does.
