Why would God let all those homes burn down

Laura Schlessinger

People frequently ask me how to answer tough questions like, “Why would God let all those homes burn down?”

As children develop their notions of the Divine from whatever house of worship you attend, they tend, with their still immature perspectives, to think of God like a character in a Disney feature film; a powerful genie with a magic carpet, or a wand.

In reality, the best answer goes something like this: “Honey, God did not burn down anybody’s home. God created all the wonderful trees and flowers, and left it up to us to keep them trimmed, make our homes as fire-safe as possible, and not be careless with fire.”

An answer such as this places the responsibility on humans to take care of all their blessings, lest unfortunate, sad, and desperate things happen.
