One of the most common phrases made by kids and teenagers, even adults today is, "Life's not fair!" or "That's not fair!". I wonder what they would think if God made life fair? If life really were fair then all of us would die and go to hell, end of question, because we are all sinners in need of a savior. But because life isn't fair and because Jesus paid the price for our sins by dying on the cross, we can have a relationship with God though Jesus.
Even though we were born deserving death, God gave us a free gift of eternal life, only through Jesus. Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The next radical step for you today would be to make life as fair as you possibly can for everyone else, and in turn for yourself, unfair. Be willing to serve and help others, treat them better then you do yourself, no matter how they treat you back.
