We see things from the perspective of self, as sin-broken creatures. Jesus points out here that these seemingly bad things are only important for one reason: they make us stop and look up for a second and ask why? Jesus then says something that to us seems irrelevant to the topic but is the most important thing to God: “Repent!” This is a reminder that a right relationship with God is most important. The only truly bad thing that happens to people is not being in a right relationship with God. Thank God for Jesus, who through the cross makes all who believe right with God!
