Friends it has perplexed me a lot,because I see haughty people rule the roost and humble and obedient people suffer for no rhyme or reason of theirs.There are people who are core selfish,who lack nothing,but people who share and have compassion suffer a lot for no reason of theirs.Dishonest businessman,live in palatial houses,where as honest people suffer the insecurity of not having a home,what do you have to say when injustice and crime happens to good people,and the most selfish people live a lavish and satisfied life.Bad things seem to plague good people, and people who are straight forward face a lot of unwanted sufferings.Is there an answer for such phenomenons that happens to the good and the honest.

many people get frustrated with issues such as this. we can see that wicked people prosper in which they aren't deserving and good people suffers so much. But when we base it on biblical principles, their prosperity wont last til eternity

Some things are just unexplained. Good things do happen to good people too. And bad people do get their retribution. I'm sure those who become rich in a devious manner don't really enjoy the fruits of their so-called hard work. And those who get rich from hard work do deserve their wealth.

Good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people because that's just life -- unfair. To add up, this happens not too often. Most of the time, bad things happen to bad people and good things happen to good people. Karma is real, and it's up to you if you're going to surround yourself with good karma, or bad karma.

But if we have faith in god you can overcome our Karma.For god can change any karma to be positive.

Life is a mixture of both sufferings and happiness. It doesn't mean that, if you do all the good things in a good way then you will be happy all the times. Such things deals with god and he is the one who decide what to happen in us. The only thing we can do is just to do good you can lend your prayers to him. He will surely help you

That is really a good thinking,I appreciate your idea.God can make you go through crisis,if you depend upon him in times of bad things happening to you.

can i say it is maybe only coincindence?? and they are deserved good things (even they are bad people) because they want to work hard.. the success can be reached not only by dreaming but you must work hard.. and they did it..

If you black market essential goods and make a fake famine and profit from it Is it hard work. When you are dishonest politician and earn through unlawful ways,is it hard work. If you use dishonest ways to cheat others of their money,is it hard work.When I see people with honest hard work get into trouble,I feel bad.
