It's not fair! And we really, really want it to be...especially when we feel like we are getting the short end of the stick.
If I had a penny for every time one of my kids came bursting through the back door demanding justice I would take you all out for dinner...or drinks....
It is natural for the human heart to want justice - especially when we feel cheated - but as Christians we can aim higher.
Our main goal in life is not to try and make everything fair. Our goal is to love God and love people. Sometimes this will look like trying to make things fair, but more often it will look like leaning into the mercy and generosity our God shows us and reflecting that back to the people around us.
So "Aim Higher" has become our family shorthand for "remember the greater goal." And if we want to communicate this quickly from across the yard, you may see one of us shooting a pretend bow and arrow up into the clouds.
With the Lord's help, we can do better than fair. We can aim higher.
...we make it our aim to please Him.
2 Cor. 5:9
