Sermons about Unfair
Living on the earth under the rule of God can cause conflicting paths. Jesus tells us that if we want to be first, we should strive to be last... that doesn't always make sense. In this parable Jesus illustrates our need to see God's view of the terms "equal" and "fair."
In this short portion of the Sermon on the Mount Jesus gives His follower a higher standard for relationships. The values of the day gave people the freedom to love their friends but hate their enemies. Jesus raised it to a higher standard of loving ones enemies with the same love that God exhibits, agape. In teaching this new standard Jesus uses the example of how God shows common grace to both believers and non-believers. This example of fairness to all is the model we are to follow. The fairness of God to allow believers and non-believers alike to experience both positive provision like sun and rain but also the negative issues in life like storms, illness unemployment and so on. This issues of fairness is hard because we want God to place a hedge around us and not let us experience the same challenges that non-believers face.
