What Is Fair?


Thank God!!!!

I wonder if we all realize how miserable an existence this would be if life was fair. Can you imagine being held responsible for our sinful nature? Jesus accepted the role of whipping boy and made payment in full for our past and future sins.

There are people who stand on a pulpit and preach about reparation. They suggest to their congregation that someone owes them something. Wouldn't it be something if we all had to pay the piper for every sinful thought and action? How do you stand before others and suggest they are due reparation from others for the actions of their forefathers, (contrary to the teaching of the Bible), when you have been forgiven and not held accountable for your own sins? Yes, life is not fair, Thank God!

Personally I'm glad life isn't fair, we are all on the winning side of that one. There is no gnashing of teeth or wrath of God present in our daily life, but that would be fair. Now the afterlife, what occurs post judgement day, that'll be fair. In the mean time we all need to hit our knees and praise Jesus for accepting the wrath of God for our sins, and begging forgiveness for our daily sinful nature. We'd do well to explain this to our fellow man. Some of them have been deceived by Satan that we live in a just and fair world. I think once we all realize what just and fair involves, we'll happily accept the fact that the playing field isn't level, that it's tipped heavily in our favor. Just the idea that we "deserve" something we have not yet earned suggests a level of selfishness. Isn't that also something we'd have to atone for?

God Bless!
