We misjudge God because our perspective is too small. We estimate His character on the basis of what we can see: Why the suffering? Why the pain? Why the long, long road?
But God's purposes cannot be judged by finitude; He can't be understood by looking at visible things. We believe Him by faith when we don't understand: We know that He is who He said He is and that He will do what He says He will do.
We don't judge Him at all because every judgment underestimates the greatness of His goodness and the depth of His love.
Postscript: Rhubarb is just emerging from winter slumber. Separated from its context, it's really hard to tell what it is...
