That’s not fair!

Ezekiel 18:25 “Yet you say, ‘The Lord isn’t doing what’s right!’ Listen to me, O people of Israel. Am I the one not doing what’s right, or is it you?

Even after repeated warnings, Israel continued to disobey God.  Eventually, God had to punish them.  In response, they cried out, “That’s not fair!”  This is how we often respond to God’s discipline in our lives.  In reality, He is fair because we are the ones who have broken the rules.  God is not supposed to live up to our standards.  We are to live up to His.  Rather than looking for a a way out of punishment, we should seek to follow the principles God has set for us in His Word.
