My son has been asking many questions related to God and why He lets bad things happen to people. This is such a hard concept for adults to try to understand sometimes much less a 5 year old. We tell him how good and loving God is but he is trying to understand that if God is so good why do bad things happen. For example: "Why does God make it so cold when He knows there are poor people who can not afford coats and they will freeze to death?" I could use some wisdom as to what I can tell him that he can understand.
