Don't you think that sometimes God have a favoritism? Does God always fair at all time?

God (the God of the Bible) is all-knowing and all powerful. Everything He does is right. To us life often does not look fair, and it really never seems to have been God's plan to give all people the same gifts, resources, opportunities and experiences. Is their a favoritism with God, though? Yes, in the Bible there are plenty of bible verses that God prefers to give His blessings to those who love Him and obey Him. But we really do not want God to be fair. The grace of God that offers salvation through Jesus Christ is way unfair - a gift that no person has ever been worthy of. djbtol

I totally agree. Among the virtues of God Almighty is love, wisdom, power and justice. He gives everyone a chance to change and comply to his laws. He is justice in the sense that He loves and gives blessings to those who love and obey Him. However, his love is also shown by his the things he provides. He give us all the sun, the rain and air necessary for survival. This shows that he is just. He gives these for free even to the greedy and wicked people. And truly, the salvation He offered through Jesus makes us unworthy of it.

I believe he is fair. Sometimes its just us who thinks he isn't That's because we often see the good things and blessings that others have then compare them to ourselves and say "I hope I have those blessings too." Then we start thinking that they were more blessed than us and God isn't fair for giving his blessings. But there's something that we don't look at like what others don't have while we do. This is because people tends to concentrate on their shortcomings but don't even appreciate their simple blessings. So before saying they are more blessed than us, think first about the blessings that you have. They may look so blessed but they are missing something that we already have. God has plans for us as long as follow his path. It may seem that he doesn't give what we ask but he is actually giving what we really need rather than what we just want. We don't need to understand all of his plans, we just need to believe in him. -)

Oh.. I felt embarrass while reading this.. maybe you're right.. I only see what others have and don't see what God gave to me.. in my conclusion, maybe God is fair and we are being unfair to Him...

Hi Meipan... God is always fair. God will listen to the prayer and blessing the person who stand on the way of God without looking at skin colour, gender and age. Please dont doubt on thinking about God due to some problem that you had facing on. Think positively, any problem must has the solution and we need take some time to find out the solution. You should believe that God always be your side.

i think he is fair, it just appeared to be unfair because he gives tough challenges to the strong one and gives less burden to the weaklings :D
