Who among us have never had the experience of sharing the gospel with someone and their response was, "How can a good God let people starve in Africa?"
I was thinking about that as I was listening to NPR the other day as the whole Somali Pirate Attack was unfolding. The report said, "Nearly half of Somalia's 7 million people depend on food aid." These people will go hungry unless these pirates are stopped and these ships containing said help are released by these.
God provides people with food, it is the sinfulness of men that prevent his goodness to be shown forth. Now God is an ALL-POWERFUL God, He can accomplish what he wants, yet this is a reminder of that this world is broken, full of sin, and ultimately men are completely depraved.
