Davidisms - Fairness Ended in the Garden of Eden

If there’s one thing we’ve all learned - at one time or another - it’s this: Life’s not fair. Before the Fall in Genesis 3, God intended life to be “fair” through the protection he provided in the Garden of Eden. But instead, Eden ended and became the place where brokenness began. And fairness ended. Why? Because sin entered the world. Rebellion corrupted everything. Children especially - but even adults - often cry out, “That’s not fair!” And often life is not. We live in a broken, unfair world. Yet followers of Jesus must continue to walk in victory! We are sinners living in a broken world. But we also know that God is for us. With us. In us. And working all things together for our good and his glory (Romans 8:28). Remember every day that this world is riddled with unfairness: Fairness ended in the garden of Eden. But remember as well that one day, one glorious day, this world will be redeemed. Restored. Made whole again. Come soon, Lord Jesus. Come soon.
