How many times have we heard that, or we have said that to our children? I have often thought that in various situations, life isn’t fair, and that’s not quite the way life should be viewed. Remember our Bible stories about how God created each and every one of us uniquely. So our situations in life are different from one another and unique. All of us have different approaches to how we do and process life. God has a unique and different journey for each of our lives.
God is merciful and has given us all a chance for eternity in heaven if we just believe and accept him. So the next time we think that life isn’t fair, we just need to change our outlook on the situation. Look at the circumstance or situation and say to ourselves, this is my unique journey of life that God has given me, and make the best of it.
Ecclesiastes 9:11 “The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy.”
