Why are good people always tested while the not good ones have a good time?
I think you may not realize it, because many people hide their feelings and what is going on in thier life, but everyone is tested....it is just that the tests are unique to each person.
I can answer that from my learning from life...
Tests bring promotion.. and good people are worth the promotions.
Tests lift you up to a higher lever and good people deserve them.
Test proves strength and mettle and good people need to come out stronger..
Tests are the only way to show you and others what you are made of !!
The truth is without tests you stagnate!!
The purpose of living this life is to Determine What our Real Purpose Is, My friend. For some, the way is learned quickly, because they have learned how to listen to the inner voice that guides all of us. It is they who have become adept at Living!
Others who don't listen to it but rather choose to follow others, believing that they somehow are more blessed, better informed or chosen by the Creator to be natural leaders, run into difficults which though they are perceived as good have not listened properly. Once they do learn to listen all becomes right for them too!
I choose to listen now and have finally learned what it is that we are truly capable of. We are so much more than we are told. The path is always open to those who ask, seek and knock. Once that is done then they will attain it by the best means possible.
You have received some wonderful answers! Your question reminded me of a book called something along the lines of, Why do Bad Things Happen to Good People. I think it came out in the late 90's. Perhaps you can find some reviews on it on the Internet. It may add to your research.
I agree with many of the comments. If we look at the bible as well as other parables and beliefs we often see the same theme. Challenge builds character through awareness and reflection. We see the greatest dignity in those that have humbly succeeded in the challenges of life. Humble being the keyword.
i too have shared in your questions, but then again - we do not always see beyond the surface of those we question. Time and time again I have learned - there is more than one side to every story.
There are some great responses listed. I would say that the good people are being prepared for much more wonderful things in this life and beyond. The testing is to make them humble and to respect and understand others who have had these struggles.
The bad people that have a good time are doomed - unless they come to a spiritual realization. They may be having a good time now, but in the end, they will fail miserably!
It is easy to be "not good", but they are tested. We may not see it, but they are tested just as much as the good people. Everyone has their own trials they must face.
Doing whatever you want and denying yourself nothing is not a test! Denying yourself when you must and doing what you must when the time calls is a test.
Well I'd have to say that the 'not' good ones are already going down the wrong path. It's only a matter of time before they reap what they sow. The good ones as you say are tested or face trials because they come out strong, while those who arent so good more than likely just don't care. I'm sure everyone has their trials, but its those who do good who's endurance causes others to be inspired and have hope. And who knows maybe the 'not' so good ones will see their virtue and want to change.
Just like you, I am also baffled on why it is happening in our surroundings, in our community and other places where people converge in everyday life and existence. Bad guys are rewarded the luxury of life while many God fearing people always suffer in the doldrums of constant pain and miseries.
You cannot say bad people are not tested. If by bad people, you mean more swave characters, then they're just able to get out of something. That doesn't make them a bad person, it just means they're at a better level of lying then good people.
because goodness has a price, but if i am only permitted to use this word, badness, has no price.
