Click here to listen April 8 Life is unfair
Today, I am going to share with you some NOT so shocking news: LIFE IS NOT FAIR! Ok, ok this is something we already know, but if you are like me, you have times where you get frustrated because life is so unfair. You try to be a good person. You try to do what’s right and often times you are not rewarded in the way you think you should be rewarded. I wonder if you are going through a situation right now where you feel you are getting the short end of the stick. One thing is for sure—people are going to disappoint us, just like we disappoint other people. My friend, we need to remember that we live in a fallen world. Life is hard and things are going to happen to us that we feel are unfair. What matters is how we respond. Let’s think about our Savior and Lord Jesus. He was treated unfairly. The perfect son of God was beaten, ridiculed, and tortured, but how did He respond? He spoke truth to his accusers and He demonstrated love. Let’s take a look at these verses in Ephesians:
“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ”.
Life is not fair. But when trouble comes, let us seek to respond in a way that brings glory to God. Let us speak truth in love. Thanks for stopping by! ~Joy
