June 24 / 20 – Fairness – Treating everyone in a just and accepting manner.

To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
Proverbs 21: 3

Ever felt life’s not fair? Just the other day during a game my grandchild hollered to his

sibling, “That’s not fair, you cheated.” Sound familiar? Sometimes I want to holler that

sentiment to another adult with whom I am admittingly envious. We have all been given

different gifts but most of us want what we don’t have. It’s a sinful world with sinful

people. I don’t think of it this way but fairness properly defined is freedom

from dishonesty, bias, and injustice. It’s a choice, it’s your choice.

Peace to you.

About bshiveofhope

I have been lead to hold a number of differnt occupations over my working years. Surprisingly, most of which I could have never forcast for myself. They include- Nurse, wife, mother, florist, nana, writer, custodian, and now blogger. With these vocations have come many life experiences. I love catchy words and phrases.They are easy to remember and when shared can be a source of encouragement and hope. The meanings are not new their counterparts can be found in the reliable book of life, the Bible. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
