Why Does God Allow the Innocent to Suffer?

There is so much suffering in the world, and it is felt by everyone to one degree or another. Sometimes, people suffer as the direct result of their own poor choices, sinful actions, or willful irresponsibility; in those cases, we see the truth of Proverbs 13:15, “The way of the treacherous is their ruin” (ESV). But what about the victims of the treachery? What about the innocent who suffer? Why would God allow that?

It is human nature to try to find a correlation between bad behavior and bad circumstances and, conversely, between good behavior and blessings. The desire to link sin to suffering is so strong that Jesus dealt with the issue at least twice. “As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, ‘Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?’ ‘Neither this man nor his parents sinned,’ said Jesus” (John 9:1–3). The disciples made the mistake of assuming that the innocent would never suffer and assigned personal guilt to the blind man (or to his parents). Jesus corrected their thinking, saying, “This happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him” (verse 3). The man’s blindness was not the result of personal sin; rather, God had a higher purpose for the suffering.

Another time, Jesus commented on the deaths of some people killed in an accident: “Those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish” (Luke 13:4–5). In this case, Jesus again discounted the notion that tragedy and suffering are the result of personal sin. At the same time, Jesus emphasized the fact that we live in a world full of sin and its effects; therefore, everyone must repent.

This brings us to the consideration of whether such a thing as “the innocent,” technically speaking, even exists. According to the Bible, “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Therefore, no one is “innocent” in the sense of being sinless. We were all born with a sinful nature, inherited from Adam. And, as we’ve already seen, everyone suffers, regardless of whether or not the suffering can be linked to a specific personal sin. Sin’s effects permeate everything; the world is fallen, and all creation suffers as a result (Romans 8:22).

Most heartbreaking of all is the suffering of a child. Children are as close to innocence as we ever see in this world, and for them to suffer is truly tragic. Sometimes, innocent children suffer because of the sin of others: neglect, abuse, drunk driving, etc. In those cases, we can definitely say that the suffering is the result of personal sin (just not theirs), and we learn the lesson that our sin always affects others around us. Other times, innocent children suffer because of what some might call “acts of God”: natural disasters, accidents, childhood cancer, etc. Even in those cases, we can say that the suffering is the result of sin, generally speaking, because we live in a sinful world.

The good news is that God did not leave us here to suffer pointlessly. Yes, the innocent suffer (see Job 1–2), but God can redeem that suffering. Our loving and merciful God has a perfect plan to use that suffering to accomplish His threefold purpose. First, He uses pain and suffering to draw us to Himself so that we will cling to Him. Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble” (John 16:33). Trials and distress are not something unusual in life; they are part of what it means to be human in a fallen world. In Christ we have an anchor that holds fast in all the storms of life, but, if we never sail into those storms, how would we know that? It is in times of despair and sorrow that we reach out to Him, and, if we are His children, we always find Him there waiting to comfort and uphold us through it all. In this way, God proves His faithfulness to us and ensures that we will stay close to Him. An added benefit is that as we experience God’s comfort through trials, we are then able to comfort others in the same way (2 Corinthians 1:4).

Second, He proves to us that our faith is real through the suffering and pain that are inevitable in this life. How we respond to suffering, especially when we are innocent of wrongdoing, is determined by the genuineness of our faith. Those with faith in Jesus, “the pioneer and perfecter of faith” (Hebrews 12:2), will not be crushed by suffering but will come through the trial with their faith intact, having been “tested by fire” so that it “may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:7, ESV). The faithful do not shake their fists at God or question His goodness; rather, they “consider it pure joy” (James 1:2), knowing that trials prove that they are truly the children of God. “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him” (James 1:12).

Finally, God uses suffering to take our eyes off this world and turn them to the next. The Bible continually exhorts us to not get caught up in the things of this world but to look forward to the world to come. The innocent suffer in this world, but this world and all that is in it will pass away; the kingdom of God is eternal. Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world” (John 18:36), and those who follow Him do not see the things of this life, good or bad, as the end of the story. Even the sufferings we endure, as terrible as they can be, “are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us” (Romans 8:18).

Could God prevent all suffering? Of course He could. But He assures us that “all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28, KJV). Suffering—even the suffering of the innocent—is part of the “all things” that God is using to accomplish His good purposes, ultimately. His plan is perfect, His character is flawless, and those who trust Him will not be disappointed.

4 Triggers of Addiction Relapse and Avoiding Them

The key to maintaining a life in addiction recovery is a combination of self-care and self-awareness. By taking care of ourselves and recognizing certain signs, we can prevent relapse. One of the tools some people use is HALT. This handy acronym reminds us to take a moment (HALT) and ask ourselves if we are feeling Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired. It seems simple enough, but we are susceptible to self-destructive behaviors when these basic needs are unmet, including relapse. Fortunately, hunger, anger, loneliness, and tiredness are easy to address and serve as a warning system before things reach a breaking point.

HALT can serve as a reminder to all of us that we need to take care of our basic needs every day. Take a moment each day to check in with yourself. Ask, “Am I hungry, angry, lonely, or tired?” Honestly, assessing how you feel takes only a minute. Doing so will make the everyday stress of life easier to deal with and help you maintain sobriety.

#1 Hungry

Hunger can be a physical or emotional need. Understanding the need to eat is relatively straightforward. However, we should remind ourselves not just to eat but to eat well. Meeting nutritional needs allows our bodies to operate to the highest potential and will keep up feeling better. However, when we HALT and assess our situation, we can describe a hunger for less tangible things such as affection, accomplishment, and understanding. This is why having a support system is so important. Those who care for and love you will give you food for your heart and ease the emotional hunger that you’re feeling. To alleviate hunger, do not turn to destructive habits or negative people. While these things could temporarily bring relief, they will not fill the physical or emotional emptiness you’re feeling. Instead, find something wholesome to eat with a good friend or loved one.

#2 Angry

Anger is a normal, healthy emotion to experience. The important thing is to HALT and take time to understand what is causing your anger and know how to express it properly. Perhaps you are angry with a situation, a person, or maybe yourself. It might be one little thing that spins out of control or an ongoing event. No matter what is bothering you, assess whether or not you can confront what is angering you. Calmly talk to the person you have an issue with or fix the problem you’re having. If what is angering you is out of your control or you aren’t ready to confront the issue, try to express yourself in other ways. Exercising, punching a pillow, or even cleaning are active ways to get rid of the excess energy anger brings. Creative projects such as painting, singing, or writing might be a better way for you to dispel your anger. Meditation or prayer can be a way to calm yourself anywhere and anytime. Finally, talking to someone who isn’t involved in the situation can be beneficial to thinking through your anger. Regardless of how you expel your anger, make sure you acknowledge it and reflect upon its causes so you can then release it in constructive, not destructive, ways.

#3 Lonely

Loneliness can occur by ourselves or when surrounded by many people. We isolate ourselves when we don’t feel like others can understand us, withdrawing into ourselves out of fear or doubt. Being alone is a self-imposed situation. HALT if you’re feeling lonely and ask yourself if you have reached out to anyone lately. Your support system is there for you when you feel depressed, overwhelmed, or anxious or if you need to talk to someone. Going to a meeting, calling a friend, or visiting a loved one might be just what you need. You can also simply go out in the world by taking a walk, running errands, or going to a coffee shop. Rather than hiding from everyone and returning to substance abuse, reach out and connect with others who want to see you happy and healthy.

#4 Tired

Tiredness takes a toll on our bodies, mind, and spirit. It is easy to ignore how tired we become when our days are filled with errands, meetings, and activities. However, running on low energy compromises our ability to think and our capacity to cope. Taking the time to HALT is particularly important when you’re tired. Satisfying the physical need to sleep, rest, and rejuvenate is critical to keeping healthy physically, emotionally, and spiritually. A good night’s sleep or a leisurely nap may be all you need to change your outlook for the day. If your day is particularly hectic, take a short break by listening to music, going for a walk, or simply taking a deep breath. Maybe it has been a rough couple of days or weeks that requires a trip to your favorite park, movie theater, or restaurant. Recharging your body, mind, and spirit will help you get through tough moments and maintain your sobriety.

Block vs File vs Object Storage

Files, blocks, and objects are storage formats that hold, organize, and present data in different ways—each with their own capabilities and limitations. File storage organizes and represents data as a hierarchy of files in folders; block storage chunks data into arbitrarily organized, evenly sized volumes; and object storage manages data and links it to associated metadata.

Your organization’s data is one of its most valuable assets. Each piece of data or larger data sets — customer information, big data analytics, financial information, employee records, custom applications, etc. — requires you to make a crucial decision regarding where and how to store the information. While organizations often employ multiple types of storage, storage decisions should be made on the data level.

Block

  • Fast
  • Reliable
  • Easy to modify
  • Lack of metadata
  • Not searchable
  • High cost
  • Databases
  • Email servers
  • Virtual machine file system (VMFS) volumes

File

  • Easy to access on a small scale
  • Familiar to most users
  • Users can manage their own files
  • Allows access rights/file sharing/file locking to be set at user level
  • Challenging to manage and retrieve large numbers of files
  • Hard to work with unstructured data
  • Becomes expensive at large scales
  • Collaboration of documents
  • Backup and recovery
  • Archiving

Object

  • Handles large amounts of unstructured data
  • Affordable consumption model
  • Unlimited scalability
  • Unlimited scalability
  • Advanced search capabilities
  • Cannot lock files
  • Slower performance than other storage types
  • Cannot modify a single portion of a file
  • IoT data management
  • Email
  • Backup/recovery
  • Video surveillance

Block Storage

Block storage is when the data is split into fixed blocks of data and then stored separately with unique identifiers. The blocks can be stored in different environments, such as one block in Windows and the rest in Linux. When a user retrieves a block, the storage system reassembles the blocks into a single unit. Block storage is the default storage for both hard disk drive and frequently updated data. You can store blocks on Storage Area Networks (SANs) or in cloud storage environments.

Block storage chops data into blocks—get it?—and stores them as separate pieces. Each block of data is given a unique identifier, which allows a storage system to place the smaller pieces of data wherever is most convenient. That means that some data can be stored in a Linux environment and some can be stored in a Windows unit.

Block storage is often configured to decouple the data from the user’s environment and spread it across multiple environments that can better serve the data. And then, when data is requested, the underlying storage software reassembles the blocks of data from these environments and presents them back to the user. It is usually deployed in storage-area network (SAN) environments and must be tied to a functioning server.

Because block storage doesn’t rely on a single path to data—like file storage does—it can be retrieved quickly. Each block lives on its own and can be partitioned so it can be accessed in a different operating system, which gives the user complete freedom to configure their data. It’s an efficient and reliable way to store data and is easy to use and manage. It works well with enterprises performing big transactions and those that deploy huge databases, meaning the more data you need to store, the better off you’ll be with block storage.

There are some downsides, though. Block storage can be expensive. It has limited capability to handle metadata, which means it needs to be dealt with in the application or database level—adding another thing for a developer or systems administrator to worry about.

File Storage

File storage is when all the data is saved together in a single file with a file extension type that’s determined by the application used to create the file or file type, such as .jpg, .docx or .txt. For example, when you save a document on a corporate network or your computer’s hard drive, you are using file storage. Files may also be stored on a network-attached storage (NAS) device. These devices are specific to file storage, making it a faster option than general network servers. Other examples of file storage devices include cloud-based file storage systems, network drives, computer hard drives and flash drives.

File storage uses a hierarchical structure where files are organized by the user in folders and subfolders, which makes it easier to find and manage files. To access a file, the user selects or enters the path for the file, which includes the sub-directories and file name. Most users manage file storage through a simple file system, such as File Manager.

File storage, also called file-level or file-based storage, is exactly what you think it might be: Data is stored as a single piece of information inside a folder, just like you’d organize pieces of paper inside a manila folder. When you need to access that piece of data, your computer needs to know the path to find it. (Beware—It can be a long, winding path.) Data stored in files is organized and retrieved using a limited amount of metadata that tells the computer exactly where the file itself is kept. It’s like a library card catalog for data files.

Think of a closet full of file cabinets. Every document is arranged in some type of logical hierarchy—by cabinet, by drawer, by folder, then by piece of paper. This is where the term hierarchical storage comes from, and this is file storage. It is the oldest and most widely used data storage system for direct and network-attached storage systems, and it’s one that you’ve probably been using for decades. Any time you access documents saved in files on your personal computer, you use file storage. File storage has broad capabilities and can store just about anything. It’s great for storing an array of complex files and is fairly fast for users to navigate.

The problem is, just like with your filing cabinet, that virtual drawer can only open so far. File-based storage systems must scale out by adding more systems, rather than scale up by adding more capacity.

Object Storage

Object storage is a system that divides data into separate, self-contained units that are re-stored in a flat environment, with all objects at the same level. There are no folders or sub-directories like those used with file storage. Additionally, object storage does not store all data together in a single file. Objects also contain metadata, which is information about the file that helps with processing and usability. Users can set the value for fixed-key metadata with object storage, or they can create both the key and value for custom metadata associated with an object.

Instead of using a file name and path to access an object, each object has a unique number. Objects can be stored locally on computer hard drives and cloud servers. However, unlike with file storage, you must use an Application Programming Interface (API) to access and manage object

Object storage, also known as object-based storage, is a flat structure in which files are broken into pieces and spread out among hardware. In object storage, the data is broken into discrete units called objects and is kept in a single repository, instead of being kept as files in folders or as blocks on servers.

Object storage volumes work as modular units: each is a self-contained repository that owns the data, a unique identifier that allows the object to be found over a distributed system, and the metadata that describes the data. That metadata is important and includes details like age, privacies/securities, and access contingencies. Object storage metadata can also be extremely detailed, and is capable of storing information on where a video was shot, what camera was used, and what actors are featured in each frame. To retrieve the data, the storage operating system uses the metadata and identifiers, which distributes the load better and lets administrators apply policies that perform more robust searches.

Object storage requires a simple HTTP application programming interface (API), which is used by most clients in all languages. Object storage is cost efficient: you only pay for what you use. It can scale easily, making it a great choice for public cloud storage. It’s a storage system well suited for static data, and its agility and flat nature means it can scale to extremely large quantities of data. The objects have enough information for an application to find the data quickly and are good at storing unstructured data.

There are drawbacks, to be sure. Objects can’t be modified—you have to write the object completely at once. Object storage also doesn’t work well with traditional databases, because writing objects is a slow process and writing an app to use an object storage API isn’t as simple as using file storage.

Understanding Blockchain Technology

Blockchain is a shared, immutable ledger that facilitates the process of recording transactions and tracking assets in a business network. An asset can be tangible (a house, car, cash, land) or intangible (intellectual property, patents, copyrights, branding). Virtually anything of value can be tracked and traded on a blockchain network, reducing risk and cutting costs for all involved.

Blockchain is ideal for delivering that information because it provides immediate, shared and completely transparent information stored on an immutable ledger that can be accessed only by permissioned network members. A blockchain network can track orders, payments, accounts, production and much more. And because members share a single view of the truth, you can see all details of a transaction end to end, giving you greater confidence, as well as new efficiencies and opportunities.

Blockchain Elements

Distributed ledger technology

All network participants have access to the distributed ledger and its immutable record of transactions. With this shared ledger, transactions are recorded only once, eliminating the duplication of effort that’s typical of traditional business networks.

Immutable records

No participant can change or tamper with a transaction after it’s been recorded to the shared ledger. If a transaction record includes an error, a new transaction must be added to reverse the error, and both transactions are then visible.

Smart contracts

To speed transactions, a set of rules — called a smart contract is stored on the blockchain and executed automatically. A smart contract can define conditions for corporate bond transfers, including terms for travel insurance to be paid and much more.

Blockchain Flow

As each transaction occurs, it is recorded as a “block” of data

Those transactions show the movement of an asset that can be tangible (a product) or intangible (intellectual). The data block can record the information of your choice: who, what, when, where, how much and even the condition — such as the temperature of a food shipment.

Each block is connected to the ones before and after it

These blocks form a chain of data as an asset moves from place to place or ownership changes hands. The blocks confirm the exact time and sequence of transactions, and the blocks link securely together to prevent any block from being altered or a block being inserted between two existing blocks.

Transactions are blocked together in an irreversible chain: a blockchain

Each additional block strengthens the verification of the previous block and hence the entire blockchain. This renders the blockchain tamper-evident, delivering the key strength of immutability. This removes the possibility of tampering by a malicious actor — and builds a ledger of transactions you and other network members can trust.

Blockchain Benefits

Greater trust

With blockchain, as a member of a members-only network, you can rest assured that you are receiving accurate and timely data, and that your confidential blockchain records will be shared only with network members to whom you have specifically granted access

Greater security

Consensus on data accuracy is required from all network members, and all validated transactions are immutable because they are recorded permanently. No one, not even a system administrator, can delete a transaction.

More efficiencies

With a distributed ledger that is shared among members of a network, time-wasting record reconciliations are eliminated. And to speed transactions, a set of rules — called a smart contract — can be stored on the blockchain and executed automatically.

Bitcoin vs Ethereum

Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) are arguably the two most popular cryptocurrencies out there and have greatly contributed to the sector’s growth. Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency ever to be created and is seen as digital gold or “gold 2.0,” while Ethereum can be seen as a decentralized computer for the world. 

Bitcoin is seen as digital gold because it is scarce and durable like the precious metal, but it can be easily stored and divided. Ethereum is seen as a decentralized computer for the world because the network is used to run decentralized applications (DApps), meaning applications that aren’t under the control of a central authority.

Bitcoin (BTC)

  • Founded 2009
  • Store of value / medium of exchange
  • Proof-of-Work
  • Block time 10 minutes
  • Max supply 21 million

Ethereum (ETH)

  • Founded 2015
  • Platform for immutable programmable smart contracts
  • Proof-of-Stake
  • Block time 12 - 14 seconds
  • Unlimited supply

Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin was launched in January 2009 as a peer-to-peer digital currency by an anonymous developer using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. The impetus for a decentralised currency that could not be manipulated by governments or large financial institutions came out of the 2008 global financial crisis. 

Bitcoin is intended to be a global currency that anyone can use to transfer money and pay for goods and services. But its high price volatility against fiat currencies has attracted investors using it as a form of “digital gold” to diversify their portfolios and traders looking to speculate on price swings.

The bitcoin cryptocurrency coin runs on the Bitcoin blockchain, a network of computers and servers that processes transactions and stores the data on a decentralised ledger. 

Blockchain networks like ethereum or bitcoin do not require an intermediary to process transactions, unlike the traditional system that uses banks as intermediaries to facilitate transactions.

The Bitcoin blockchain operates a PoW consensus algorithm, in which miners verify transactions and add them to the chain in new blocks by solving cryptographic calculations. Miners receive bitcoins as a reward for their work at a rate that reduces by half every four years in a process known as “halving”. 

The maximum supply of bitcoin has been capped at 21 million, so a slower rate of new coin creation limits supply while demand is expected to increase as adoption grows. 

Some market observers have become critical of Bitcoin, as bitcoin mining has become somewhat centralised among large groups of mining pools that have set up extensive installations of expensive computer equipment. As the number of bitcoin miners grows, the difficulty of the cryptographic calculations increases, requiring more processing power. This results in bitcoin consuming massive volumes of electricity. 

Ethereum (ETH)

What is the difference between bitcoin and ethereum? The Ethereum blockchain, with ether as its native cryptocurrency coin, was launched in 2015 by a group of developers including Vitalik Buterin. following an initial coin offering (ICO) in 2014. The ICO raised financing to develop the project, which Buterin had outlined in a whitepaper in 2013.

One of the key differentiators between Bitcoin vs Ethereum is that while Bitcoin is designed as a digital currency platform, Ethereum is an application development platform, with ether used to enable operations and transactions. Thousands of cryptocurrency token projects have emerged in recent years that run on the Ethereum blockchain, adhering to the ERC-20 compatibility standard.

The Ethereum blockchain can store and execute automatic smart contracts, which enables project developers to create decentralised applications (dApps), including decentralised finance (DeFi) products and services as well as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Although other smart contract platforms have gained prominence, Ethereum remains the most popular choice for dApp developers.

The Ethereum blockchain has run a PoW algorithm since its launch, but has long planned to shift to a PoS mechanism as part of the introduction of its Ethereum 2.0 upgrade. The upgrade aims to enable the Ethereum blockchain to scale up to accommodate more and faster transactions while increasing efficiency and reducing high transaction costs, known as gas fees.

Life Coach vs Leadership Executive Coach

While there are some very stark distinctions between both forms of coaching, in general, both a Life Coach and an Executive/Leadership Coach works with a client to help them move forward with a firm objective and purpose. The difference between the two forms of coaching comes in the area of their emphasis. Executive coaching has the added dimension of the client’s professional standing being inherent to the relationship and the outcomes. If you are not hired by the executive directly you will be working on goals set by the executives supervisor. At the end of the day though, a coach hired to work with an executive will come across issues and areas related to the executives overall life over the course of a coaching contract.

Life Coach

A Life Coach generally works with an individual on a personal level. They may help clients understand personal goals and objectives and discover the things that are holding them back in their effort to meet these goals and objectives and ultimately create a life in alignment with their values. The life coach often helps clients find balance in their lives, build positive relationships or improve their outlook. Success in this coaching relationship is measured by the happiness and fulfillment of the client. The coaching agenda is not mixed with a business agenda, life coaching is all about the individual.

As a Life Coach the focus of the client’s needs are personal in nature. Rather than providing professional development in how to be more effective in a work role, life coaches often help with personal life challenges. Some thoughts or ideas for exploration with a life coach may include:

  • Where do you want to be a year from now? Five years from now? Ten years from now
  • What do you want more of in your life?
  • What does success mean to you?
  • What do you want to be remembered for at the end of your life?
  • Are you moving in the direction of your dreams?
  • What would you do if you had no fear?
  • Are you enjoying what you do on a daily basis? What needs to change?
  • What could you do right now that would make the biggest difference in your life?

It’s important to note that Life Coaches are paid less than what Executive Coaches are paid and this varies in different countries. Perhaps the biggest factor for the difference in pay is that 61% of Life Coaching clients pay for their own coaching, while only 10% of Executive Coaching clients do the same Sherpa Survey.

Leadership Executive Coach

By comparison, an Executive, or Leadership Coach addresses the professional aspirations of the client. An individual in a leadership role has a responsibility to many people (shareholders, subordinates, the public, etc.) Because of this level of responsibility the executive coach may suggest that the leader focus on specific measurable outcomes as they impact their role in the business. For this coaching relationship, the measurement of success is directly related to the client’s professional achievements.

An Executive Coach might best be defined as a coach who works with leaders who also have a personal life. Some thoughts or ideas that come into play in this relationship might include:

  • What areas of your professional life are working in a positive manner?
  • What areas could use improvement?
  • What type of professional feedback is affirming to you as a leader?
  • What do you consider to be a “win” in your work life?
  • What beliefs do you have that serve you well as you pursue future career goals?
  • What beliefs do you have that are not serving you?
  • What do you need to do to take your career to the next step?

In Summary

The rapport between the Life Coach and client as well as the Executive Coach and client is based on a level of trust that grows stronger over time; however, the considerations of the coach/coachee relationship are vastly different. While both a life coach and an executive/leadership coach work to guide or facilitate the client in meeting specific goals, the executive coach takes into account the organizational culture and business climate. Additionally, both a life coach and an executive coach seek to help their clients reach a deeper insight and understanding, but an executive coach works to help the client align this understanding with an organizational or business agenda or process.
