“Yet you say, The way of the Lord is not fair.’ Hear now, O house of Israel, is it not My way which is fair, and your ways which are not fair? When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and dies in it, it is because of the iniquity which he has done that he dies. Again, when a wicked man turns away from the wickedness which he committed, and does what is lawful and right, he preserves himself alive. Because he considers and turns away from all the transgressions which he committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die.”
It’s a long read but it starts out with something I’ve heard people say today – God is not fair.
God is fair.
We were caught with the goods. We sinned.
God knew about it and provided away for our innocence.
He provided grace and forgiveness.
What isn’t fair about that?
Here is what isn’t fair.
God provided a way for salvation and people ignore it.
That’s not fair.
