Life may not be fair, but you can still make the best of it!
In each age cycle in life whether a baby, a teen, adult or senior we face different challenges. I cant imagine being born today and my parents or doctor can’t decide if Im a male or female.
How about missing the college you dreamed and worked your butt off to get there, only to find out some parent bribed the admissions to get their ‘spoiled entitled’ kid into the school. How heartbreaking for the hard honest student. I wonder how many coaches have been paid off to have their kid on the starting varsity team.
Perhaps you missed that promotion or raise you deserved, but it went to an unqualified or dishonest person.
I can’t help but think of the local man a couple years ago put in prison for 32 years only to know find out he was innocent. This is tough to handle for 32 years of innocence, yet the man is free, and happy to be free.
The best we can do is what is right, do your best, and be honest. Honesty is such a lonely word as the song says. If people are dishonest in the little things they will be dishonest period. It doesn’t matter how much a person justifies their dishonest action, it’s just not right. People lie to get ahead, but eventually it will blow up in their face and catch up to them.
If you have failed in this area make it right with God, with yourself, and the person or entity you cheated.
Why? You will be doing the right thing and have peace and God will be at peace with you. You will become a better person and people will be able to trust you again, but not always the case.
For those who have been shafted or cheated on the best a person can do is to forgive them and move forward. You also will have peace and not become bitter, but better for doing what is right.
“Better is a little with righteousness, Than vast revenues without justice”.
Proverbs 16:8 NKJV
