Life is full of uncertainties, but one thing we can be certain of is that God cares for us and will be there for us when we need Him if, that is, we put out trust in Him. Human beings are flawed and prone to sin, and because of that we can and, in many cases, do make messes of our lives, sometimes with tragic consequences. God, however, is not flawed and is not prone to sin, and therefore He and He alone always does what is right and because of that He can help His children avoid making the sin-driven mistakes that can and do ruin lives. The problem is that while God is there to help, He can do nothing if His children refuse to place themselves in His care and continue on a life path that can and does lead to suffering and destruction. Those who do place themselves in God’s care, however, find themselves living earthly lives that, while they may not always be perfect, are far closer to perfection than who refuse His care. They also will one day find themselves experiencing all that is best in eternity, something those who reject God’s care will never know.
