What’s going on biblically when children complain about something not being fair?
Lee had a good discussion with one of our children, who was concerned about fairness when a sibling had computer time that neither of the other two siblings received. Lee mentioned later that people overly concerned with “fairness” are often simply envious. That was a new thought for me.
It’s important to note that parents can sinfully give preference to certain children– I don’t know how to define this or what it’s called. But showing favoritism is bad. On the other hand, treating children differently isn’t always favoritism. (For reference see Matthew 20.)
That’s all for today.
