When Jesus was young, Herod the king went on a rampage and began killing all of the children.
I think it’s interesting that God didn’t stop it. Instead, he sent an angel to warn Joseph to escape.
There are a lot of implications to that.
Why did God allow Herod to do these things? Why did he intervene only as an angel?
These questions aren’t bad—even if they are unanswered.
But we also see the other side of that. God came as a man to save us. All the pain and heartache today is short compared to an eternity of restoration.
The in between gets fuzzy. This is where faith comes in. We trust God because we know God. Not because we understand all of the points in between.
