I Shocked My Kids

We were talking about the story of Jonah during our family prayer time - sharing the things we learned about God - when I shocked my kids.

Elizabeth said she learned God is fair.
I disagreed.
I said, "God is NOT fair."

And each of my children looked at me like I was looney.
But I held my ground.

I said, "Is it fair that Jesus died on the cross?"
"Is it fair that we sinned, but because of Jesus' death, we get to go to heaven?"
"Is it fair that we don't get what we deserve?"

They got my point.

Indeed, God is NOT fair.

And I, for one, am so very thankful!!!
