Life Isn’t Fair

It isn’t going to come as news to you that life isn’t fair. But what might come as a shock is that God isn’t fair either. 

God made us for himself and in his image and we rejected him. Fairness would be a life separated from him. Fairness would be no hope of heaven and no forgiveness. That would be fair, that would be just.

In our own lives, fairness looks like offending others who offended us or judging people who have judged us. Fairness actually makes us miserable. 

The central image of our faith is a man dying on a cross – who was completely innocent – for your sins. The central image of our faith, thank God, isn’t fairness, it’s mercy. And that’s who God is calling us to be: merciful, as He is merciful.
