Have you ever read something at just the right place and time in your life that was so profound it created in paradigm shift in the way you view your life and the world around you? That is what happened to me the other day when I read this short passage from Sarah Young’s daily devotional, Jesus Calling.
I already know that life is not fair. We all know that, right? But usually when I think of life not being fair I think of the negative side of that statement – like how unlucky I have been in losing my leg, seeing my friend and my brother die and any number of other tragic events that have happened to me. But what I fully realized in this profound reading is that God is even more unfair than this life.
God is unfair in that He never ceases to offer me His Peace, Love and Understanding if I simply choose to accept it. With all that I have done to lie, cheat and manipulate other people, places and things to get what I want, He still offers me complete Forgiveness. How awesomely unfair is that!
Today I choose to thank my God for the free gifts He unjustly offers to me. Consider detaching from your unfair life circumstances for just a few minutes today and thank your Higher Power for being so selfish and unreasonable.
