What’s Fair?

Life isn’t about being fair. It’s not about justice. (Sherrilyn Kenyon, American writer)

Sometimes we might feel like the little boy who prayed, “Dear Life, I have a complete grasp on the fact that you are not fair, so please stop teaching me that lesson.” Well, if it’s not about justice, what is it all about? Kenyon’s answer, “It’s all about endurance and how much we can suffer through.” Actor Tom Selleck counsels, “Life isn’t fair, but you can be.” Good advice!

[Walk with God,] Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair, and you will find the right way to go. (Proverbs 2:9)
