It's Not Fair!

The Hubster and I raised two great daughters. When they were small, we tried to be equitable with gifts and treats. If one got a new toy, the other girl got the exact same plaything. If only one cookie was left, it was cut in two identical pieces. As their parents, we wanted to be fair.

 We couldn't have been more wrong.

Life isn't fair. Bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. This world is not a safe place and there is little equity in it. Other applicants get jobs that were perfect for us. The wrong guy gets the girl. Your brand-new car gets a big dent.

Some friends have said it's "not fair" that I was diagnosed with cancer while The Hubster was battling multiple myeloma. That's the point. It was my turn. Nothing in life is perfect, or right, or fair.

This old world is broken, but we have Heaven ahead. If Earth was idyllic, why would we need Heaven, and a Savior to guide us?

Genesis 6:11-12 (KJV)
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
