Ecclesiastes 9:6

6Their love, their hate and their jealousy have long since vanished; never again will they have a part in anything that happens under the sun.

When popular individuals find themselves in the receiving end of injustice, followers protest in-person and on social media for justice. It cannot be denied that nobody can control ones length of life on earth. Everyone has unique choices in life. Even when one tries to imitate others’ lifestyle, there will still be particular differences of lifestyle. And, anyone who may explore carefree kind of life should not be carefree of danger possibilities.   There’s no specific lifestyle that can be totally perfect in everything on imperfect world.

Will Christians enjoy life in the midst of injustices and imperfect world? Yes! But, it is only possible to enjoy life when Christ Jesus prevails as Lord in us; and, that is when his promise of abundant life can be realized. Because he loved us, God decreed the crucifixion of his Son Jesus Christ as ransom for believers to be saved from eternal punishment for sins. He designed series of circumstances, situations and events necessary for the betterment of all of us who love him and diligently do what he had prepared for us to do. If the Holy Spirit of God produces fruit of love, joy and peace in us, we can trust that our loving Lord God Almighty would allow anything for our good.

You may have felt like you were mistreated or not given due recognition, even when you were doing your part very diligently. It reminds us in Galatians 6:9, 9Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

The enjoyment of eating food prepared meticulously cannot be substituted by food prepared instantly. Similarly, the Lord prepares us meticulously to cherish his reward for obedience to his instructions. May the Lord increase our faith and faithfulness in us!

Lord Jesus, increase my faith and faithfulness and not be wearied in doing good.
