Iyov Twenty-Four: Fairness

“He feeds the barren woman who will not bear, but he does not adorn the widow (Job 24:21).” A sentence like this shows that for many of us, it seems like God’s presence, and the presence of blessings in our lives, are almost arbitrary. In any moment, we can easily see how blessed others around us are – or we perceive them to be – but it’s much harder to recognize the blessings in our own lives. It can seem unfair when we don’t experience the blessings that we’re hoping for, in the way that we want. So I want to live as though everything is a blessing, even if it’s one that I don’t understand in the moment.
