Life Isn’t Fair… But It’s Just

Have you ever lamented that life doesn’t seem fair?

Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.

Luke 10:13

Do you understand what Jesus is saying here? If the signs done for these people were done for the people of Tyre and Sidon, then they would have repented… yet, they didn’t repent. God does not give everyone an “equal chance” and life isn’t “fair” – it doesn’t seem intended to be.

But God is just. He does not promise to give us all a “fair shake” but he does promise to put everything right in the end. So when life isn’t fair, don’t accuse God of not doing something he promised, or worse, of not being there. He is not the cable guy 4 hours late, he’s doing exactly what he intends to do… trust him.
