I don’t deserve this

I have turned so as to see under the sun, that the race is not always to the swift the race, nor the battle to the mighty, nor bread to the wise, nor wealth the intelligent, nor favor to the skillful, for time and chance happen with them all. Ecc.9:11

Life is not fair. Though our actions and attitudes can and do effect outcomes in our lives, time and chance disrupt our self-reliant perspectives and replace them with God-centric perspectives. Focus on the unfairness of life yields bitterness. Focus on the love and grace of God yields peace.

Lord, thank you for giving me better than I deserve.
