TESTING, TRIALS, AND TRIBULATIONS EXPLAINED
John 9: As He passed along, He noticed a man blind from his birth.
John 9:2 His disciples asked Him, Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he should be born blind?
John 9:3 Jesus answered, It was not that this man or his parents sinner, but he was born blind in order that the workings of God should be manifested (displayed and illustrated) in him.
This is but one of many instances in the Bible that explains why people’s circumstances are not to be judged by humanity’s limited scope, cause and effect theory, and fate speculator.
The Book of Job, the stories of Moses, Abraham, David, Joseph, Esther and many others share wisdom about the process of testing with trials and tribulations to refine a person’s integrity and faith.
No one is perfect. We all have flaws, weaknesses, and qualities people just don’t like, approve of, or have the courage and compassion to tolerate. And yes, judging others is the fault we all have unless we choose to see past what we do not and cannot know.
The best correcting tool is unconditional love, but the next best thing is valuing … respecting people simply for being a life … because respect as a principle is the only way prejudice and the many harmful consequences it manifests will be reduced and when mixed with love, eradicated.
