21 Reasons... Shared by Until...


When I was young I remember always being told to mind my business and do good. Treat others the way I want to be treated. Everyone knows that saying, right? Well, let me be the first to tell you that when you say sentiments like that to a child, you must expound on what you say because children are impressionable and depending on the child they can take those things most of the time, very literal; their innocent. But that will happen until they become old enough to differentiate what should be taken as such or have leeway. 

I was that child. I, for the most part walked a straight line, so when something bad happened to me or someone did me wrong. I would most definitely be appalled, flabbergasted and dare I say it? ANGRY. I would drive my mother crazy with asking her the question, WHY? And that is when she found she had to expound on what was said to me. She would say sometimes, bad things happen to good people, but that doesn’t mean you are to stop being good. So, needless to say when I was in D.C. at the Giant Grocery Store and ran across this book entitled: 21 Reasons Bad Things Happen to Good People by Dave Earley; you know I had to stop in my tracks, back up and analyze, investigate to see what it had to say, right? Right.

A lot it did. It asked a question; have you ever asked God, “Why is this happening to me?” Perhaps God is expanding your perspective of Him… or preparing you for greater blessings or calling you to increased prayer. So maybe you’ll find some answers like I hope to of the hardships of life in this collection of twenty-one biblical reasons for human trials. 

However I’m not reading this book until I have true down time so I can really get the feel and just of it. If you want to know more about this book and author please go to www.daveearley.net and if you want to discuss this book or any book with me, for that matter, please feel free to now contact me at my new email address ccnuntil@pacbell.net

Until next time, be good. (Smile)
