trying to be fair...

Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?" Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.
-Matthew 18:21-22

it is true, that life is not fair,
but as christian aren't we supposed to be?
is God, our Father and ultimate role model,
completely and utterly fair?
does he not offer the kingdom to everyone?
does he not love each of his children the same?
who are we to decide what other's deserve?
is our main goal not to love,
and love unconditionally as he loves us?
life is unfair because the the prince of darkness has his dirty hands on it,
but i will choose to live as best i can,
as close to the Lord as i can,
and loving as i possibly can be.
my second chances are incapable of diminishing,
my compassion has no limits.
i might be wrong in my beliefs and please tell me if i am,
but i'm just trying to listen to the voice of my Father,
to do what he asks of me,
and to give others what he has given me.
