Misery Or Prosperity
Human beings have the capacity for unspeakable evil and unfathomable kindness. Both misery and prosperity are well within our grasp. All we have to do is choose the type of life we want for ourselves, the type of world we want to live in. God doesn't prevent bad things from happening to us because He doesn't cause bad things to happen to us. He gives us the freedom to choose our own paths, and lets us live with the consequences.
