  • Last Sunday we lifted up our prayer requests and celebrations. There were a lot of prayers for people whose loved ones had died or were dying. There were a couple of 40-something parents who were dying of cancer. We prayed for them and their children. There was the infant who died in a tragic accident. She was the only child her older parents were able to have.

It reads, “…We know that in all things God works for the good.” Like the Bible verse that says, “God never gives you more than you can handle,” these verses comfort people in times of challenge. The problem is one is incomplete and the other is not in the Bible, and neither, as they are printed, are true.
