I know that some day, (if not already), my boys will think, “Life isn’t fair!” And it’s true. Life is definitely not fair. We can’t have fruit snacks for every meal of the day. (Or, in my case, KitKats. But oh, do I wish I could!?) Sometimes the car breaks down, and it is usually at the same time as another financial crisis. Will pouting and whining help? Definitely not. Will dusting off your knees and getting to work help? I’d bet yes. Another help is to be grateful for that which you have. Be grateful you even have a car. Or grateful that you got fruit snacks as a snack. (Hence their name…not fruit dinner, fruit snack.)
I saw this video quite some time ago but the message has really stuck with me that life may not be fair, but when looking at things from an eternal perspective, we definitely come out on top. We may not win every battle but, through Christ, we have already been given the gift of victory in the war.
