Yes, when something "bad" happens to a person, 1. it can lead them
to "return" to G-d and also 2. every punishment that we get in this
world, means we don't get it in the world to come. So it is
actually an expression of G-d's attribute of lovingkindness.
I find this interesting, God can bring calamity as an expression of
justice when his righteousness demands it and he is not doing evil.
Quite the opposite, an execution of judgement on the oppressor is an
expression of love to those oppessed. Also does not God's holiness
mean he is removed from corruption and badness?
