We're reading some lectures in my theology class and this stuck out today me today as we were reading Origin...about creation/good/evil and what the heck we're supposed to do with it...
Origin: Genesis Homily 1
"But someone asks how the great whales and creeping creatures are interpreted as evil and the birds as good when Scripture said about all together, "And God saw that they were good."
Those things which are opposed to the saints are good for them because they can overcome them and when they have overcome them they become more glorious with God...If you use what is bitter then what is sweet is rendered more praiseworthy. If you consider what is dark, the things which are bright will appear more pleasing to you."
