God wants us to treat each other as we would like to be treated.
OUR DAILY PRAYER FOR JUNE: FAIRNESS
Let us pray ...for the virtue of fairness-the desire to live by the rules of God's kingdom everyday of our lives.
A fair person....
- listens to both sides of a story
is a good team player
knows that the same rules apply to everyone
works to bring about peaceful solutions to a problem
God makes us to live together as a family in creation, to share and to help each other. Being Christian is all about living together in community-ideally, one big happy family. Jesus spent a major part of his time on earth showing us how to car for people in need. He spent a lot of time showing us how to follow God's rules. Everyone needs a FAIR chance to succeed-to overcome their disadvantages and disabilities. A fair team player makes sure the rules of the game give everyone an even chance to participate. Not everyone has to win. Everyone deserves a chance to be in the game.
I do not mean that there should be relief for others and pressure on you, but it is a question of a fair balance between your present abundance and their need, so that their abundance may be for your need, in order that there may be a fair balance.
2 Cor 8:13-14
There is no wrong time to do the right thing.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A FAIR PERSON? CAN YOU REMEMBER A TIME WHEN YOU WERE UNFAIR. HOW WOULD YOU CHANGE THAT SITUATION IF YOU COULD?
