It isn't messed up. Bad things happen to the good, to see if they keep about their good ways, even when difficult. As for the other, I can't say why. But also, you can't say this is always what happens, not everything is circumstantial.
I think good and bad things happen to both good and bad people. I think the good people just let bad things humble them and take away a lesson to make them a stronger person. As for bad people I see bad people as angry little kids that never grew up and are angry at the world. "Misery enjoys company"
Bad things gotta' happen no matter what, so when a bad thing happens be glad it was not worse then what it was. Especially if it was a small bad thing. I try to minimize the bad or negative. plus good things don't happen to bad people it only seems like it does. they will take every situation and turn it into something awful.
I agree :( i dont know why, iv asked the same thing...people say its all the bigger picture, but in the moment, a lot of people are suffering who really dont deserve to... i do believe, however, that the bad people suffer as well eventually. if not, there are a lot of angry people like you and me who im sure would be happy to take revenge.

In the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon wrote:"I returned to see under the sun that the swift do not have the race, nor the mighty ones the battle, nor do the wise also have the food, nor do the understanding ones also have the riches, nor do even those having knowledge have the favor; because time and unforeseen occurrence befall them all. For man also does not know his time. Just like fishes that are being taken in an evil net, and like birds that are being taken in a trap, so the sons of men themselves are being ensnared at a calamitous time, when it falls upon them suddenly."-Eccl 9:11,12. It would seem that qualities such as swiftness, mightiness and wisdom would cause people to prosper in every undertaking. But often things work out unexpectedly. Though unforeseen circumstances occasionally are favorable, frequently they come in the form of accidents, sicknesses or other calamities. In view of this, the wise Bible writer recommends especially two things: (1) Work diligently from day to day; (2) "see good" from your hard work by enjoying what you have right now. Words to this effect are found at Ecclesiastes 5:18-20.
