During a sister's talk in Sacrament meeting last week (based off of Jeffrey R. Holland's talk, "Laborers in the Vineyard"), she said that many of us, at times, may say, "life's not fair". We all have trials, but if we trust that the Lord is mindful of us and that he sends trials our way to make us better, then shouldn't we really be saying, "life is fair"? He knows what we need to go through to become the people we need to be. Our trials make us who we are and if certain trials are what it takes for us to learn and grow, then doesn't it make God completely fair? He is doing all that he can to help us return to him. Though it at times seems that life can be unfair, we must remember who sets the terms and trust that he knows best and will reward us accordingly.
