"It's Not Fair!"

Do You Know What Will Be "Unfair" in Heaven? It's a Good Thing!

"It's not fair!" 

Spend time with a group of children, and you'll soon hear this phrase.

Typically, children are quick to point out inequalities, deprivations, or mistreatments. 

Instead of moderating every squabble between our children, sometimes we just need to agree with them. 

Do You Know What Will Be "Unfair" in Heaven? It's a Good Thing!
Life isn't fair. 

God never promised it would be fair (John 16:33; John 15:18; Romans 8:18-25). 

At one time or another everyone is hated, slandered, mistreated, cheated, deceived, misunderstood, misrepresented, unappreciated, disrespected, or ignored.

It's not fair, but it's reality. God never promised justice here and now.

However, God promises something far better. 

He promises eternal justice when all accounts will be set straight (Revelations 20:11-15).

The only "unfair" thing in heaven will be our presence because we deserve eternal death (Romans 6:23), but Christ took our punishment upon Himself (Isaiah 53:5).

So next time something unfair happens to you, remember that we all deserve death and Hell, but those who love the Lord will spend eternity in paradise. 

That puts all earthly hardships in perspective.

    1. I know what you mean, Christine. So many things don't make sense when we don't know the Lord.
