I’ve been thinking a lot lately about taking responsibility for ourselves. How often do we do that? How often do we blame others or God for things that happen to us? This was prompted by a question from my young son who asked why God sometimes allows bad things to happen to people. We talked for a while about free will and the consequences of our choices. “But what about people who didn’t do anything to cause what happened to them,” he asked.
It’s a good question.
I answered him as best I could, but it’s been on my mind ever since.
