Ok the thread on thanking Jehovah for keepping a purse safe while left in a shopping cart, got me to thinking.
If we are suppossed to thank God for the good things in life, why is it wrong to blame him for the bad things?
This exact thought always crosses my mind especially when inconsequential things are attributed to any "higher power."
Like an athlete that looks or points skyward after scoring a goal of some kind. If the opposing team scores, they do the exact same thing!!! Does the almighty have a favorite team? Obviously not because both sides give him credit. It's just so stupid and petty.
And, like you state, he gets credit for finding a purse. Does an entity entrusted to watch the entirety of mankind (all the billions and billions of people) take timeout from his duties to watch over people in peril to help some dumbass find something? And, again as you state, what's the deal if you don't find your property?
Seems like his time would either be better spent helping folks in a life-or-death predicament or some subtle reminder to the dumbass to not lose their stuff in the first place. It all just makes me ill...
