Every single story—every single word—is in the Bible for a reason.
It all points to God’s compassionate desire to rescue and restore His creation.
We mustn’t succumb to the temptation to only study the parts we like or the ones that make us feel good.
If we do that, we run the risk of completely misjudging God’s character.
Stories of pain, suffering, and injustice are woven into the biblical story.
Because pain, suffering, and injustice are part of the human experience.
Isaiah 12:2 says, “Indeed, God is my salvation; I will trust him and not be afraid, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my song. He has become my salvation.”
