‘Life is not fair!’

“Life is not fair! If there is a loving and all-powerful God, why should He allow people to suffer!?”

Very legitimate question and concerns raised by a lot of people, even the most devout Christians. Nicky Gumbel (Author: Searching Issues) details a conversation between Gavin, a Pastor & a boy who had fallen down the stairs at a very young age, consequently had been in and out of hospital.

Gavin: ‘How old are you?’
Boy: 17
G: ‘How many years have you spent in hospital?’
B: 13
G: ‘do you think that is fair?’
B: ‘God’s got all eternity to make it up to me.’

Wow! What depth of insight! The young man got this – “Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.” Rom 8:18 (cf 2 Corinthians 4:17)

May you know God’s comfort in your present sufferings.

Every blessing,
Word of Hope Ministries

In times like that, we need encouragement, a word of hope, a voice that assures that it gets better; that we should hang on. Just-A-Thought offers Christian words of hope in dispair, light in darkness, and strength to carry on.
