This is a post from my husband’s blog which is so important and well written. Please continue to keep our daughter and us in your prayers. Thank you.
I am sad when I hear an adult say it; to hear it from a young person was downright disheartening.
We were talking about how to deal with challenges, when one of the young people proudly parroted: “But God never gives you more than you can handle, right?”
And really just plain patronizing, if not downright mean. Have you ever considered what “God never gives you more than you can handle” says to someone who is grieving or sick or dealing with some other challenging life situation? “What’s wrong with you? God wouldn’t give it to you unless God knew you could handle it. Suck it up, don’t be a whiner Just handle it already.”
