Have you ever wrestled with the question, “If God is good and loving, why is this world so messed up and broken?”

I know I’ve wondered how God can just sit by why over 20,000 children across the planet die of starvation and lack of water every single day. Doesn’t He care about the over 27 million people trapped in modern day slavery? As fresh tragedies and growing poverty overshadow the holiday season, I know many will be asking if we really have any reasons to celebrate. Does God care about this broken world? Does God have a plan to help us? Has God communicated His side of the story?
