Being exposed to painful things is a consequence of limitation. Humans are limited in various ways - We die. We die because we are destructible and can be harmed. Without limitation there is no being and hence no existence. Forms of limitation like pain and death are a necessary requirement for being.

Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of sadness and pain, the word happy will loose its meaning if it were not balance by sorrow, sadness and pains. it is far better to take things as they come. imagine a 365 days of raining without sun or a day without night. i bet you will not live in such a terrible situation. every situation in life is for us to experience.everything in life work according to the law of opposite. we experience , learn and move forward.

Cos your god is incompetent and imaginary

Cos he can't do anything to protect anybody cos he doesn't exist

Cos bad things can happen to anybody at anytime and there's nothing any of the 4000+ gods can do about it

To make you stronger.

Just like life under bubu leadership. Bubu has tried to eliminate Nigerians through hardship but we have prevailed and have become stronger to send him back to Daura.

Well, first of all, No pain comes from God. Every pain on earth is as a result of Man's choice via his actions and through demonic influence.
You've got to accept that God never promised a pain-free life on earth. Rather, he promised to be with you during those painful periods. As a believer, every pain you pass through works out patience and experience in and for you, it won't last.
Also, God for now cannot remove pains from the world because the prince of this world(satan) is still in operation, although under a limited time.
Nevertheless, there are still biblical proven ways to stay out of some troubles(pains). Pain remains a feature of human existence.
But be rest assured that God sees all these, He has put in place firm modalities to handle these pains at the right time. He is God, not a rebot. And God is good.

Pain is a blessing.

There are people who naturally don't feel pain, you need to know what their fate is.

No. It keeps you alive.

Animals feel pain, they don't know God. Even ants run from the heat of fire, they sense the heat and know its dangerous to hang around.

No, i didn't. But what i mean is, pain keeps us warned of danger. The fearful runs away from it, the bold faces it and overcomes.

Pain keeps the living alive. Those who have no pain naturally, die untimely.
Research them and see.

There's another angle to this question I recently pondered on...and I wonder if people also ask...

Why does good things also happen to wicked people?

Does it mean God is merciful to the wicked but unfair to righteous people suffering?

When you ask these questions alongside what the OP asked...you'll have a broader perspective to this "organized chaos" called life...

I will answer you with a Yoruba proverb that says in evil there exist good and in good there exist evil .

everything on earth is balance on both positive and negative..........as good as water maybe, it can leads to hyponatremia. And as bad as war maybe it enriched the winner

You have a broad and balanced view on the matter...and your answer makes perfect sense.

It's just that I'm concerned with the number of "bad things happening to good people thread" but I hardly see "good things happening to bad people thread"

Either ways...some people will still blame "God Almighty" for either outcome...
