I have seen everything in this meaningless life, the fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don’t always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time. – Ecclesiastes 9:11
I’m sure you’ve heard this many times while growing up, that life isn’t fair. That’s what the scripture touches on here. That life isn’t fair. Let’s face it, life isn’t fair for anyone. Everyone has problems. Bad things happen to good people and there is nothing you can do. So, it’s better to focus on the things that you CAN control. Focus on what you can change within your power and let go of the rest. THEN you’ll make your life a whole lot easier.
