It's almost cliche nowadays to hear someone say that they are blessed by god in some sort of way. A lot of times when a pro football player gets a touchdown he points to the sky (god).
This has always perplexed me. As that pro football player is pointing to the sky, thanking god for giving him the strength/courage/opportunity to score that touchdown, there is probably a very smal child about to die of starvation in a different part of the world.
The same goes for really any person who holds the opinion that their good fortune is a 'blessing' from god.
I'm not blanketing all christians here, but I do see a lot of this. Why do us American's get so many 'blessings' whereas people in other parts of the world get to scavenge for food. What did they do that was so bad not to get part of these blessings from god? (like financial stability, sustenance and covering)
So my question is why do some people think that fortunate situations are some sort of reward for their good deeds?
If god exists, why would he be blessing some people who believe in him and letting others, who also believe in him, suffer and die?
