What is man that you make so much of him, that you give him so much attention, that you examine him every morning and test him every moment? (Job 7:17).

This question is not one of awe and wonder that God should show an interest in mankind. Rather it conveys perplexity because human existence seems to be in the form of a moral trial. Yes, God does permit a significant proportion of our experience to be inexplicable to us. Under such conditions virtue and worth do not happen by default. They come only through personal effort and volition. Those elements of life that we treasure most might not exist at all without the other parts God allows!
