HASHEM is merciful and kind.
We learn it over and over again.
As much as a mother loves her child, HASHEM loves each one of His creations many times more.
We have been taught that since we were little children.
Yet when we look around the world, there is so much that just doesn’t make sense. There is pain and suffering. There are hurricanes and tornadoes. There are diseases and ailments. There are orphans, widows, and broken homes.
If we accept that HASHEM is all-knowing, then we understand these facts are part of the design that HASHEM had for this world. They weren’t by accident. They were part of the plan.
How are we to understand all of the suffering and misfortune that seems to be deliberately designed into the world?
