Life Isn't Fair


It's true that life isn't fair. Ever since Adam and Eve took the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden life hasn't been fair. There are many of us who think that life isn't what it should be. We regret past mistakes that would have made our lives "better". We struggle to get what we think will make us happy. Only in the end - we are left searching for more.

That is what makes life unfair. After all the pain and suffering. After all the work and sweat. We want more and more and more. This world promises to meet our needs. This world says it will keep its promises. Never going to happen. We will be left in want and wondering why promises were not kept. Why do you think that Jesus said that the poor will always be with us? I don't think it is because He made people to be poor. It's because he knew that people who put their faith in the world were going to get robbed of their life.

The question is, who is keeping your promises? In other words, who do you trust to be the provision of our life and soul? This world? Wow are you going to get really disappointed. I am amazed at how many Christians struggle with this. Jesus is the only one who can meet our needs. Physically, emotionally, relationally, financially, spiritually and in every other way possible.

Many times I have said that life isn't fair but that Jesus is. Now you know how Jesus can be fair to you in the middle of a life that refuses to keep it's word. Even in the midst of cancer, depression, bankruptcy, divorce and unemployment - Jesus will be there for you. But how? And that is the question Satan doesn't want you to know the answer to. See you tomorrow!
