Fair? Who Says It Is Fair?

From Explore Faith's newsletter last week...

You can always find people out there who have more of everything than you have. And if you're beginning point is some sense of entitlement that you earned your way in here and deserve it all, then can raise your fist in the hand of God and say, "It is not fair, it is not right."

Life is not fair, because it begins in grace, and you and I have been given a gracious chance to live utterly and completely beyond our deserving. It is forgetting the grace of birth, taking for granted the wonder of aliveness, that is the occasion of so much of our resentment.
