People who boast “God’s looking out for me” whenever a bad situation rights itself are inherently untrustworthy. I say this because if they sincerely mean what they say (and they do), then the inverse must also be true, which is that people deserve the bad things that happen to them; that God could have spared them but purposefully chose not to. I mean, really…. Can you imagine thinking that God’s looking out for your flu symptoms or your fender bender or your football game while Boko Haram kidnaps children that are never rescued? Could you even muster the shamelessness? When I hear someone say they must have a guardian angel, it makes my skin crawl.
