    In Romans 8:28, Paul says God will cause all things to work together for good, for those who love him and are called by him. Notice Paul did not say everything was good. It isn’t. Some things in life are terrible, or to use a highly spiritual term, “they stink.” OK, maybe it isn’t a spiritual term, but it’s true. The key in this scripture is that God works all of our life, the good, the bad, and even the boring together for good.

    You’ve probably heard things like, “History is important” and “Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it,” since you were in your first history class. Those phrases, like most clichés, are true but not seriously considered. History truly is important, but it’s also interesting.
