Random Thoughts on the Unfairness of Life

Jesus said in His teaching in Matthew 5:45 "...He maketh his sun to rise on the evil and the good and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust..."  When my children were young and would complain to me about how unfair they were being treated, I would often respond with this comment; The unfairness of life, if it is distributed to all people in a relatively equatable manner is eminently fair.

  1. but it isn't, always... fairly distributed, that is. but God is still good, just, righteous, merciful, even when we don't understand His ways, even when life is truly unfair. the hardest lesson is to learn is to bow before His might and authority when we can't find the answers to our questions, even in the Word. Also the best lesson, I think.
