Living In The Moment

Daily Devotional Series - Day 9

Reading: Ecclesiastes 3:16-17

“That’s not fair!” Have you ever said that? How many times a day do you say that? Outside of watching our kids cry “unfair” over a half piece of cake that is one millimeter bigger or smaller than the one given to a sibling, there is true injustice in the world. We see it. We know where it is. And it never makes sense. Wicked people are rewarded for bad behavior. So what do we do? We cry, “It’s not fair!”

However, how many times have we cried, “Unfair” and been wrong? We are so quick to be judge and jury. We want justice now! Then we have hurt people because we didn’t know the whole picture. This happens in our house all the time. One child says “He hurt me!” and demands justice. We’ve gotten wiser though. We don’t make a decision off the first report. We follow up with a question, “What did you do?” Then we look for the third child who is not directly involved and get the truth. Then there is justice.

Justice is not our job. God will take care of it in his time. Stay in your lane. Enjoy and love the people you come into contact with and find satisfaction in your work.

Key Scripture

“Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord.”

Romans 12:19

Today’s Prayer

Lord, forgive us when we take your position as the judge. Let us not presume that you are doing nothing and we have to take things into your hands. Help us trust that you know what is going on and have your plan already in place. In Jesus name, Amen.

  • My mom always said to me, try not to be angry with the ways people treat you. Let it be! In time there actions will be reveled. Then they will have to answer to the Lord. What will there excuse be then.

  • Dimwits tend to have a lot of issues around generational curses and unfair punishments. Bit of irony there, as in I inherited two really dysfunctional, atheist parents. Generational curses are a real enough thing, unjust, unfair, but God doesn”t give them to us, He helps us break them,heal, and eventually laugh about them. Life is often unjust, unfair, full of harsh punishments, but the only way we know this is because God offers us something so much better.
