Why didn't you break the cookie in half and then dip it? it makes more sense if you think about it.

Only you can control what outcomes happen in your life. Sorry about the cookie, though.

While it is neurotic rather than Christian to welcome suffering, and no intelligent and comprehending Christian would welcome suffering for its own sake, the Bible actually makes it quite clear that faith in Jesus Christ and in Christianity does not guarantee a good life, but a perfect eternity. Indeed, there is more prediction in Scripture of a struggle, and perhaps a valley of fear, on earth for the believer than there is of gain and success. There may be Christian sects that promise material wealth and all sorts of triumphs in exchange for faith, but this is a non-Christian, even an anti-Christian bargain, and has never been something that mainstream and orthodox Christianity would affirm. Christians believe that this life on earth is only the land of shadows and that real life hasn't yet begun. So yes, bad things happen to good people.

Bad things happen to everybody.Not just good people.Think about it.The cookie wouldnt have fit into the milk glass for a bad person either.Maybe whatever happens after that might change,tho.The bad person might throw the glass across the room.
Philosophy defines something called "untrue statements of generalization".Like "Bad things happen to good people". Also "I washed my car so thats why it rained." Anytime you see an overly general statement,or a statement with consequences named as fitting in to a certain group,its not true. "Everybody hates me". Like that.It doesnt matter that you washed your car.It was going to rain anyway.Get it?

Talk about making something good come out of bad. Now you've learned not to try and squeeze your cookie into a glass that's too small, so you won't make a fool of yourself in the future! <smile> Ain't that great?

First, I wouldn't exactly consider your "cookie incident" a bad thing but back to you question-Bad things happen to good people cause God uses them to display that in their weakness they can have strength in him.
