No one knows why God gives some folks very difficult burdens and others seemingly very light burdens. On the surface it may appear to be very unfair.
But consider the one who is born a rich man who seems to have everything easy. We think he will always have it easy, but when you look at their lives, they are most times spoiled, and prone to be very self centered, proud and usually arrogant. Many times they think they deserve what they have and look down on other folks.
There are some exceptions but in general kids of rich folks tend to be less generous or mindful or other people.
Jesus tells us it is harder for a rich man to get to heaven than for the camel to enter through the eye of a needle (I know not the same needle as a sewing needle, but difficult anyway).
Everyone has their own burdens and crosses to bear and no one knows why some are apparently easy while others are seemingly impossible. Maybe it is a lesson for rest of us, to see how difficult things can really get. We think we have it bad, but then we see folks who have it a whole lot worse.
Part of our mission in this life is to make things a little bit better for those who are not as fortunate as us. When we see a sick person or a poor person, it’s our job to show compassion and concern. The charity that we show and express to those less fortunate is our road to salvation.
The care and concern that you show your son, is your cross to carry. But rather than show him anger and frustration at God for not curing him, you may want to show him that God loves him even more than you do. The folks who endure pain and suffering in this life willingly and offer up their suffering for God’s purpose, are rewarded with eternal life. But folks who curse God and blame Him for their troubles, are condemned forever.
Would you, in your outrage, further extend your sons suffering forever by making him bitter and resentful also ? You think suffering in Hell will not be so bad, but you are absolutely wrong. Deep down you know that is not true. Eternal suffering will make your son’s suffering pale in comparison. It’s like comparing a pin prick with being constantly burned all over your body.
We can’t really know your anger and frustration, since we are not in your situation. But it is far better to help your son cope with his ailments than it is to make him share your anger with God. Would you really want to make his suffering even more intense and last forever also ? That would be incredibly cruel and stupid to boot.
I pray for a miracle for both of you. The miracle that you both come to accept and understand God’s plan for you.
The leper who came to Jesus for a cure, asked in all humility and faith for help. He said, IF it is Your will for a cure, please let it be done. Folks who ask in anger or demand help, don’t usually get it. With faith, humility and contrite hearts, all things are possible. I hope God helps you both.
