Question

 

Gramps,

I feel God isn’t fair.  He has blessed others with families that love them and support them,  He has blessed me without parents that care for me. I feel it’s not fair for Him to expect the same things out of all of us.  He did not bless us with the same things. It’s not fair. Why does he do this?

Hi Michelle,

Thank you for sharing your question with me. I’ve had your question/concern on my mind lately. I happened to open lds.org this evening and on the home page there was link to a talk called “That I Might Draw All Men unto Me” – By Elder Dale G. Renlund. Part of the talk shares the following thought regarding “unfairness:”

At the same time, I can emphatically state that because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, ultimately, in the eternal scheme of things, there will be no unfairness. “All that is unfair about life can be made right.” Our present circumstances may not change, but through God’s compassion, kindness, and love, we will all receive more than we deserve, more than we can ever earn, and more than we can ever hope for. We are promised that “God shall wipe away all tears from [our] eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

 

I felt prompted to share this with you when I saw it. I would encourage you to take a moment to read, watch the video and ponder this counsel as I feel it will help in your situation.

Warm Regards,

 

Gramps
