What is your view on why bad things happen to good people.We have all been there.We try and try to be good people.It doesnt always turn out the way you want it to..Usually something bad happens to me that I dont exspect.Do this every happen to you? For example we where helping out an old friend he was staying with us.He is down on his luck then he steals from us.What is up with that?Itrust no one anymore.I always say that then I let my guard down again being helpfil and I always get the bad end of the deal.

first of all..good people are the one who have a big faith of God..on my own points of views,if ever there is a bad things happen to those people who have done good,the tendency is that they will questioned God on why those things happened to them,where in fact they have done good..i think God is testing our faith to him..he wanted to know if you'll remain faithful,even if something bad happens to us.. and for those people whom you gave your trust or you've done something good to them,but they have done bad in return.. here's a verse from the bible.. LUKE 5:20-26 But i say to you who hear,love your enemies,do good to those who hate you,bless those who curse you,pray for those who mistreat you..whoever hits you on the cheek,offer him the other also.and whoever takes away your coat,do not withold your shirt from him either. give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back.and just as you want people to treat you,treat them in same way. and if you love those who love you,what credit is that to you? for even sinners love those who love them.and if you do good to those who do good to you,what credit is that to you?for even sinners do the same.and if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive,what credit is that to you?even sinners lend to sinners,in order to receive back the same amount. but love your enemies,and do good and lend,expecting nothing in return.and your reward will be great and you will be sons of the most high.for he himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men..be merciful,just as your father is merciful.and do not judge and you will not be judge..do not condemn,and you will not be condemned. pardon,and you will be pardoned.give and it will be given to you,good measure,pressed down.shaken together,running over,they will pour into your lap.for by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return. --i hope that what ive wrote in here makes sense..and enlightened us..have a nice day!

A lot of bad things happen to us as well as our family. For example my dad was out of work for a whole 7 or 8 months because the people he worked with didn't like him and told everyone he was gay so he was fired. Which I told my mom and dad that even though my dad isn't gay that that was discimination and they should have sued their butts. But they didn't. The reason I thing so many bad things happen to good people is because God is testing us. But sometimes His tests go a little too far and I think he is just trying to see how strong we are. Because most of the things that do happen to us we can usually get through it no matter how hard or bad it is. God just wants to test our strength and make sure we can get through it without being so desperate that we do bad things. I hope this makes sense to you because sometimes I don't make sense to myself. If I don't keep believing that it is a test from God then I would truly go insane, lol. :)

I know it is still hard but just remember that when bad things happen something better is usually right around the corner. Sometimes those bad things are a blessing in disguise. :)
