Daily Bible Reading: Isaiah 57

[1] Good people pass away; the godly often die before their time. But no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come. [2] For those who follow godly paths will rest in peace when they die. ​Isaiah 57:1-2 NLT
I have often heard people ask the question, “Why?” when confronted with the death of someone they love, especially when that person is young. There is no good and satisfying answer to this question. This text gives us something to think about that we may not have considered.
