God is always fair
A Mother of ten children received the Mother of the Year award from her Parish community. Later during an interview, a reporter from the local Catholic newspaper asked this question. Do you love all ten children equally and alike? Without a moments hesitation she answered. “It totally depends on where they are, and what they need at any given moment.” What a great answer!” God often responds to us, His children, in much the same way. Certainly God gives each of us His love and blessings equally, but God also knows and sees things others don’t. Like any loving parent, God then acts accordingly, giving each what he or she needs to weather any storm or crisis.
When some see this, they say: “God is not acting fairly. Look some get more and others less!” Indeed, God as God can do whatever God wishes. However, what may look unfair to us humans--is God choosing to give His free and limitless mercy to a vulnerable family member.
God wants each of us to gain eternal life, and helps anyway God can to make this happen. And since our God likes to surprise and astonish us whenever He can, God does exactly that! And don’t forget, besides being always fair, God is also our Loving Father!
