Why is There Evil in the World?

Brett’s sermon on Sunday got me thinking. I really appreciated the conversation of : “God is. God is great. God is good…so why is there evil in the world?”

It reminded me of a strange little verse in Genesis 15: “In the 4th generation your descendants, (Abraham), will come back here, (to take the Amorite’s land) for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure.” (v.16)

What? God was telling Israel they were to take the Amorites land…but not yet…because these people haven’t gotten as bad as they’re gonna get yet?! Wouldn’t now be a really good time to go in and take the land before they get r e a l l y bad? Why would God wait?

The beautiful thing about God, is that He doesn’t think at all like us (Isaiah 55:8-9). And much of the time we won’t know why He does what He does, but some of the time, we can see little pieces of the puzzle fit together as only God can fit them—and that’s our chance to think a little bit more like Him. Which can only be a good thing, right?
