Aren’t bad experiences “valuable”?

The value people sometimes attribute to bad experiences does not come from the evil but from a God who gives dignity to those who have had theirs snatched away.   The God of the Bible does not sin.  He does not create evil things to happen.  What He does is make a road of dignity for us after bad experiences–those that are our fault and those that aren’t.  But we must choose to go down that path.  God does not force us.

Good doesn’t come from evil.  But God comes through evil and in His coming He makes a path of good.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.  (Romans 8:28, TNIV)
