A character in the Larry Niven science fiction series "Ringworld," Luis Wu, would say, perhaps even coined the term, TANJ, an acronym for "There Ain't No Justice."
I used to believe that saying to be true, and it was part of my state of depressed cynicism that placed value on unrealistic expectations, also known as the entitlement complex.
But now, I've come to realize why those expectations are unrealistic. To frame the view of justice as being against the will of God, the very rules we go by and are created for? To frame the view of justice as our being entitled to the gifts of life and secular results from our labors, and yet still be that unfair on our part to be ungrateful for those gifts simply because the lives we had and the gifts of pleasure in them were not as long or as deep as we had hoped for? To frame our view of justice as to be independent from the very being that created us and fathered us with the gift that we have not the ability to repay, the sacrificial example of His only begotten son on the cross for our eternal reward in the world yet to come, that reward which greatly overflows the gifts we have for a glimpse here on Earth? Indeed, it is right and just. We must become Graceful and humble toward our creator if we are to be blessed even further than we already are.
