Sometimes when things go wrong, our first reaction is, "Why me?" Others might say "Why not me?" Sometimes I wonder why we don't ask "Why me?" when really good things happen. There is so much that is good and beautiful in our lives, but too often we would rather blame God than appreciate the good things He has given us.
Job didn't exactly ask "Why me?" when all his troubles came upon him, but he certainly did complain. Not that I blame him. Even so, when God answered him, I find it interesting that He first asked Job a series of questions. The questions seem to be designed to point out that there are some things in life that we just can't know. Not that there aren't any answers, but that we are not able to understand them in our present state or while we are on earth. But in the bigger scheme of things there are answers. To tell someone that they just have to trust God, may seem irritatingly simplistic, yet trust is a profound emotion. To trust God no matter what, is a level of mature faith which Christians strive to achieve.
