Life's not fair, but God's not finished.

In John chapter 9, we read of a man who was blind from birth. Then Jesus comes along and rubs mud over the blind man’s eyes. An initial observation of this passage may lead you to think that God is making a bigger mess of what’s already a problem. However, this line of thinking will limit you to see what God may actually be up to in the midst of your pain and suffering. As N.T. Wright says, “The chaos and misery of this present world is, it seems, the raw material out of which the loving, wise, and just God is making his new creation.” Sure enough, by the end of the passage in John, Jesus washes the mud away from the man’s eyes, and his sight is restored. When life isn’t fair, know that God is not finished. How might God use your suffering to show the world who he is?
