“What kind of a God would allow so much suffering in the world? Doesn’t he care? Doesn’t he love?”

Have you ever heard someone say this or something similar? What would you say in response?

Does God love? Does he care?

Look at our Bible verse for today. Adam and Eve, the first people to live on this earth, had willingly and deliberately disobeyed one of God’s crystal clear commands, choosing instead to listen to Satan. By sinning, they had separated themselves from God and brought upon themselves his righteous and just anger. Just like that, our first parents became lost and condemned creatures, doomed to die physically, and they deserved to die eternally. Worst of all, there was nothing that Adam and Eve could do to save themselves. Their situation was hopeless. They had no one to blame, either. The fault was theirs.

Please take note of God’s response. He could have forever turned his back on Adam and Eve, allowing them and all their human descendants to live out their miserable earthly lives and experience a misery of pain in hell eternally. Or, he could have come down at once and annihilated them, like a person stepping on a cockroach.

But that’s not what God did. He cared for Adam and Eve. He loved them as the crown of his creation. He wanted them and all their human descendants to live forever alongside him in heaven. So what did God do? He promised to send a Savior, someone who would be punished in their place, crush Satan, and destroy death. Why? God cares. He loves.

Don’t reject this caring God who loves you. Wrap your arms of faith around Jesus, the only Savior for all people, because he cares and loves you!

Dear God, thank you for caring for me and loving me so much that you sent your only Son, Jesus. Keep my faith strong in him as my Savior. When I’m overwhelmed by my problems and fears, remind me that you will care for me because you love me. Amen.
