Heaven aint Fair

Hello all,
Thanks for the encouraging responses from last week's "Word".

Believe it or not but today's word stem from a converstion I had this morning with Kiara. It all boils down to this question; 'How do we, in our lives, define fairness?' or more to the point, how do we react when life seems 'unfair'?

Here's the Word; Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

God wasn't 'fair' with us....He was 'Merciful'. Heaven is not fair payment for living life as Christians, God's Grace and Mercy go far beyond what could be considered 'fairness';

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. - Now that's fair, are YOU being fair?

I'm sure the point is clear. As 'examples of Christ like-ness', seek righteousness, deal with all people in like manner. Please look at Luke 6:27 - 36 and don't get all bent out of shape when your treated 'unfairly'. God Himself is treating you unfairly, and it's the most wonderful thing you can imagine.
