Drive-by Linkage

I just read a short and powerful quote on Amy's Humble Musings that I wanted to share. It goes against every notion we have of "fair", but it's so incredibly true.

We will never know contentment in Christ if we seek him as a divine referee, however unfairly we may have been treated. His work in our lives is not about making sure we get the maximum benefits in the here and now, even when we are entitled to those benefits. In fact, real contentment often comes when we willingly embrace the loss of them.
