Unfair?

I have heard many times people complaining that this or that was an unfair thing for God to do. I am not without compassion for people who feel that way, or are living in dire circumstances; however, only one thing in unfair. It is unfair that God lets us live even one day. It is unfair that He hasn't destroyed this nation. His mercy on us is unfair. We don't deserve it. Our nation is overrun with sin and yet God in His mercy lets us carry on life. Our response should be one of bewildered gratefulness and repentance from our sin. We also need to call others to repentance, and especially to protect our brothers and sisters in the church from being lured away from God's truth by the deceitfulness of sin.
