Fair or Not?

The sooner you learn that life is not fair, the better off you’ll be… (Condoleezza Rice, former US Secretary of State)

Rice continues, “…because you’ll spend less time railing against life’s unfairness . . . and more time figuring out how. . . to deal with things that you’re not very good at.” We often feel that we’ve been cheated or overlooked. But, as Rice says, we won’t get far that way; instead, we need to move on to do what we do best without undue concern for how others might respond.

It matters very little how I might be evaluated by. . . any human authority. . . It is the Lord himself who will examine me and decide (1 Corinthians 4:3-4).
