If it is God’s wish that none should perish, why would God want any to suffer but to through this suffering come to seek Him with whom all good is? All good gifts come from heaven and indeed God has pity on His children, as a father pities his children.
Here is God’s gift from heaven. We were driving to the store, having been delivered from great trouble, and the Lord lay before our eyes this pastoral scene. Blessed be the God of all creation! Blessed be His Holy Name!
