I saw this on Facebook: "I would like to thank the Lord I am ok. Had a serious fall yesterday from my garage landing to the cement floor and landed on my back. I suffered a closed head wound, severe cervical sprain, 2 broken ribs and multiple contusions on hand and arm and shoulder. Could have been a lot worse."
It just gets me when people who have accidents and are injured are thankful to God that it wasn't worse. If they thank the Lord then they imply that he was overlooking the situation and prevented the situation from being worse. A loving God would have prevented the whole thing.
It is like a parent is watching his young child playing at the top of a steep stairway. Rather than removing the child from the danger of falling down the steps, he goes to the bottom of the steps to catch the child as he falls to soften the fall.
I don't think that god gives a rats ass about individual people.
