Does God Care?

Redbird's Roost

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3 (NASB)
It would be one thing if God sat on His throne safe in Heaven, immune from all suffering while He watched us in agony on earth. Some might feel justified in accusing Him of not caring. But that is not the case. For one thing, we must understand that our suffering causes Him grief. We understand this, because we hurt when someone we loves hurts. God was so moved by our suffering that He sent His Son to suffer in our place. Do we grieve when innocent children are abused by wicked men? So did God grieve when His innocent Son was abused by wicked men. Yet He knew this suffering was necessary in order to deliver us from eternal suffering.
