"The Lord has made everything for
His own purposes---
even the wicked for punishment."

~ Proverbs 16:4 LAB

Bible Commentary:  "This verse doesn't mean that God created some people to be wicked, but rather that God uses even the activities of wicked people to fulfill his good purposes. God is infinite and we are finite. No matter how great our intellects, we will never be able to understand Him completely. But we can accept by faith that He is all-powerful, all-loving, and all-good. We can believe that He is not the cause of evil. And we can trust that there are no loose ends in His system of judgment. Evil is a temporary condition in the universe. One day God will destroy it. In the meantime, He uses even evil intentions for His good purpose."
