For too many years I had a false idea that God sent tribulations so we can learn from them. I think that would be a waste of effort on God’s part. The world is driven by sin and sin can be counted upon to give us all the trouble we need so we are able to learn. All things are not good they just work together for good. God did not cause my father to kill himself with my gun. However it is my full determination to get full tuition value from that horrid memory.
