First of all, it’s a myth. God is Just and He never makes mistakes while dealing with His children and treats all equally. But yes, this do happens that good people feel that they face a lot of bad things and struggle in their lives as compared to not so good people, who enjoy the mercy of good Lord. Let’s try to analyze why we feel that God is unjust sometimes and good people suffer more?
Here are few points to ponder upon and take a hint on God’s way of dealing with His children:
1. As a class representative (CR/class monitor), you are chosen by your teacher because you possess better qualities and higher level of motivation than others. But, this does not mean that you don’t have to work hard to achieve more, and for that your teacher gives your more responsibilities & tasks to enhance your abilities and produce better results. As a CR you are given tasks that involve lots of efforts, brainstorming, management, effective decision-making skills, tact and techniques to work with others and for others, keeping in mind the best for all. So, ultimately you are tested on your skills, talents and decisions. This helps you to grow and experience things that none of your classmates would get a chance to, in the current class.
This is how God selects good people and challenges them to bring out their best and that’s why they stand apart glorifying God, radiating patience, love and kindness through God, even in their most difficult times. God selects good people not only because they can take care of themselves but also because they can take care of others and their instincts can help people rely on them.
2. After God has selected you as His representative, He will make sure that you be an example of God’s work to the world. He will even challenge you with situations that could be devastating, with the reason of making you stronger than ever and letting the world know that good people can overcome any challenge in their lives with the help, love and guidance of God.
3. During the struggle good people turn to God and God gives them refuge and reveals to them His will. Many a times these people grow weary & weak and they collapse, but every time this happens God picks them up, refuels them, and helps them to reach the ultimate goal. But still a lot of times good people could not take it forward and they break, but that does not mean that God will abandon them. He counts and considers each and every single effort of people who try and walk on the right path. So, he picks them up and takes them through himself. The only thing God desires from His children is faith, dedication and love for Him.
4. God wants His children always by His side and when God analyses our persistence towards His love and His will; He feels happy and grants us the desires of our heart. But the only thing He expects from us is to never forget the learning and guidance from Him during the challenging times, and follow them throughout life, even when the time seems easy and more favorable.
