Job and suffering

The problem of evil cannot be answered simply; it is a mystery. Why God permits it is caught up in our limited vision and understanding. Scripture says that “all things work together for the good of those who love and trust the Lord and are called according to his purposes” (Rom 8:28) But how is often difficult for us to see. Anyone who has suffered a tragic and senseless loss or has observed the disproportionate suffering that some must endure cannot help but ask why. And the answers aren’t all that satisfying to many.
