Trick or Treat?

Unfortunately no tricks up these sleeves, though I have had a couple of children ringing the doorbell for treats :) dressing up as witches. and A couple of mates planning to egg houses on this spectacular day. Yes, why a spectacular day? Knowing my awesome cousin down in Tasmania is turning 21 on this exact day. Makes me wanna yell.. hip hip hooray! So here I am, not out chucking eggs at random houses, not dressed up for treats, absolutely nothing planned on the night of Halloween! :)
Still, I'm pretty satisfied with the work I've put in today in ze gym. Still far from my ideal weight, but I guess it's a "one step at a time" thing.. :) Don't ever strain yourself while working out, that'll only leads to.. pigging out on food!
So recently, I've come to realise it's incredibly easy to burden yourself with someone elses dilemma, though it might not relate to you in any form of way; knowing someone's in need of help yet there's pretty much nothing you can do...
"Why won't God reach out to those who does not recognise him, and teach them the way to love like we do?"
"Why is there a balance between good and evil, yet innocent lives put at risk for the sake of... I dont know?"
"Though we're taught to forgive first, do we still let aside violence taking over our society?"
Unfortunately I have a limited range of vocab to go with this inspiring issue, looking into every corner in search for an answer.. Why? ohmygosh. WHY???
With questions bombarding my mind, bible seemed like the only way out...
When the owners of the slave girl realized that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to face the authorities. They brought them before the megistrates and said,'These men are Jews, and are throwing our city into an uproar by advocating customs unlawful for us Romans to accept or practive.'
The crowd joined in the attack against Paul and Silas, and the magistrates ordered them to be stipped and beaten. After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown into prison,
About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once the prison doors flew open, and everybody's chains came loose. The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open because he thought the prisoners had escaped. But Paul shouted, "Don't harm yourself! We are all here!"
The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. He then brought them out and asked, 'Sirs what must I do to be saved?"
They replied," Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved. "

Because it's our job to bring God's love to those who He won't reach out too xD

I mean let's face it - if God didn't really have that as part of our purpose in life, we should have no right to be created xD
