Life is not fair!

24 05 2009

I really like this post from Jessica, so I am sharing here in my blog. This also acts as a reminder for me … if I do encounter anything unpleasant in future..

My kids are at the age where they are always saying “it’s not fair” when things don’t go their way. I always respond, “Life isn’t fair.”

Last week I found myself thinking “it’s not fair.” My 76-year-old father was diagnosed with a debilitating, degenerative disease for which there is no cure. It always ends in death, after a few years of suffering.
It just doesn’t seem fair.

He faithfully pastored churches for almost 50 years. During his life he has turned down some very lucrative alternatives in order to live in poverty serving other people. And now, after all those years of sacrifice and service, he gets this diagnosis.

No, it’s not fair.

And when I stopped to think about it, I realized that not much in life is fair. After all, was it “fair” that the perfect Son of God was tortured, beaten, and killed because of things I had done? Was it “fair” that He who had done no wrong suffered so much for those of us who more often than not take for granted His great sacrifice? Is it “fair” that we who have sinned get to go to Heaven based on something that someone else did for us?

I’m really glad life is not fair.

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE, remember…. give thanks to God, for life is not fair!
