As humans, we are limited in our understanding of God because we are placed in a specific spot in time. All we can really know is what we have experienced. God, on the other hand, is outside of time. He sees the beginning and the end while we only see the middle.

When we assign human motives to God’s actions, we can develop wrong beliefs about His character. And our frustration of not understanding can lead us to places of wrong thinking. – Glynnis Whitwer
