Life isn’t fair
Life isn’t fair is nothing new. It started with Adam and Eve. Right after they decided to disobey God and eat the fruit, unfairness was born. Our ability to make choices leads us to unfairness. While freewill was given to us out of God’s love for us, that same freewill gives us the opportunity to choose right or wrong, good or bad. Even if we make a choice based on what we think is right, it might not be right for someone else.
The key to fairness is obedience to God. However, most of us struggle with that. Obedience goes against our nature. Therfore, to be truly obedient, we must value God. We must be disciplined and more committed to Him than ourselves.
We perpetuate our unfairness. Many people create more unfairness by trying to correct existing unfairness. Accept that life isn’t fair and learn how to manage it through God’s word and love.
