Our perception of good and bad may actually be flawed. I need the so called “bad” to shape me. We are constantly being shaped like a beautiful statue… Many times along the way we cry for help and want to come out of the fire in the furnace. We ask and beg for the whole process to be stopped in our pain. But it looks like the fire is needed to make the pot. Or the chisel is needed to carve the statue. But when they were used to create the statue or pot, the chisel and fire seemed “evil” and “cruel”. But once the total creation is complete these tools would have served their purpose… The so called “Evil” may be there to mould and prepare us .
