Why Does God Let Us Get Sick?

Sometimes sickness is the body's way of telling us that we should stop living a certain way. Perhaps we ate too much (or we ate something bad). Or we didn't get enough sleep. Sickness and disease are problems that came into the world with sin. All kinds of people get sick: good and bad, rich and poor, old and young. God wants us to take care of ourself and be healthy so we can live for him. And when we are sick, we can pray to God and ask him to help us.

Key Verse

Is anyone sick? He should call the elders of the church. They should pray over him and pour a little oil upon him. They should call on the Lord to heal him. If their prayer is offered in faith, it will heal him. The Lord will make him well. If the sickness was caused by some sin, the Lord will forgive him. (James 5:14-15)
