Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?

Here’s the short answer…He doesn’t.

In this week’s episode I’ll give you a scripture-based answer to back this up, but here’s all you really need to know:

  • God is good.
  • The devil is bad.

‘Nuff said.

Tip Of The Week

A magic photo bag that is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.

I have been faced with a travel dilemma for some time now. I live in a smallish city that often requires me to take smaller regional jets with limited overhead bin space to get where I need to go.

That’s a problem because I travel with my photo gear, business essentials, and my carry-on bag with my clothes. All that baggage makes me look like a sherpa loaded down to climb some great mountain. This is not a good look for me by the way.

Enter the Airport Essentials photo bag, from ThinkTank.

It checks all the boxes that I need in a bag, and the best part is that it’s magically bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.
