Why Not?

"Don't ask 'why', ask instead, 'why not?' - John F. Kennedy

I never forget watching a documentary on Superman (Christopher Reeve) where he was asked if he ever questioned why he had to end up as a Quadraplegic. In other words, did he ever ask, "why me?"

In a profound response Reeve said something along the line of, "just cause I am a famous actor doesn't excuse me from pain. Perhaps I should ask the question "WHY NOT ME?"

We are all going to experience some kind of trial and tribulation in our lives. This applies to every human being. When we experience tough times it is not an indication that God has a personal vendetta against us. God still loves us and will be with us during our tough times.

Living in Grace
