Dahil Pito ang Kulay ng Bahaghari

Who Said Life is Fair?

The first time I encountered that phrase… when I was in high school… when our Advanced Chemistry teacher gave us a hard (if not impossible) to do assignment… The reason?… Our whole class skipped her subject just to practice a certain class practice for another subject. After loadin us with projects and assignments of projects and assignments… She simply told us: “Is it unfair?… Edison (the name of our section) WHO SAID LIFE IS FAIR?

Many times in our lives we will say that line… Maybe starting in that maternity room, when you first saw a light of a flourescent bulb… From your mothers womb, the very comforting room that have been your condo for the last 9 months. You were just three minutes and four second old… So tender, slimy, innocent of all things, empty ready be filled with love to feel the embrace of a mother.. Then out of nowhere, PLACK!… Some child-abusing doctor spanks you. Of course you will not find any reason why he should hurt you that way! Doesn’t my mom has any Philhealth? Or my father have any down?… Haiz! Life is unfair!

Your parents were now separated, and right now you are living with you grandmother… Well, who said life is fair?… Your dad lost his job and now you need to study harder just maintain your scholarship… Who said life is fair? You are termed as Rudolph for your Christmas Raffle, and for the whole year all your friends are calling you: “Rudolph” Haiz!, Who said Life is Fair?

Ok, Your bestfriend has to move with his family to another town… Is it unfair?… Who said life is fair… Life ain’t fair. Forget about fairness. But is it right? You’ll see then that God created the heaven’s and earth right? He made it in a way you can never imagined: He brought in the Light first before creating the sun, there is water first before creating the rain… He created the Law of Gravity: What comes up, must come down. and the Newton’s Third Law: For every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction, reminding me of that letter of Paul to the Galatians:

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. -Galatians 6:7-8

To make my points glue together, we all fall short of the glory of God, and all of us therefore deserves death… death of  comfort, death of happiness, death of fame, death of success, death of relationship. And because of man, God choose to be unfair to his one and only Son.  Jesus Christ, God’s beloved Son was born in a manger… Who said Life is fair? He was raised by a simple carpenter… Who said Life is fair? He is a prophet who was never recognized at his hometown… Who said Life is fair? Who made those sins?-Man, who was pierced for our transgressions? Christ. Who has the shame? Man. But who was crushed for our sin? Christ. Christ is the one who carry the punishment that brought us peace… If life is fair, I would be the one on the Cross…

Now who said Life is Fair?…

        March 30, 2010 at 4:52 am

      • hmn, on every unfair-ness..

        my mga good things pa rin tayong na ri- reap:

        an alcoholic, recovered from a severe hepatitis… Unfair?

        a ex-chain cigarette smoker, whom got helped from the government for his tuberculosis treatment… Unfair?…

        a woman caught for adultery got forgiveness from Christ…
        a promiscous samaritan woman, got a talk with the Messiah…
        a Jew-Prosecutor (named Saul) became the spear head of the First Christian church… Is it Unfair?..

        Maybe it is better for us to think that God is Just Gracious, and ever willing to forgive…

        March 30, 2010 at 5:56 am

  7. ang ganda namang realization ‘to,animse.i would reflect over this.

  8. life is unfair if you thought it to be unfair, but the word unfair means a lot… LESSON.

    March 30, 2010 at 12:12 am

    • tama aninipot, life is beautiful for those whos eyes were set upon the good things it could offer..🙂

      pinakita ko lang ang kontra punto para sa mga taong iniisip nila n “life is unfair” …

      March 30, 2010 at 5:46 am

  9. True, life is unfair. But there’s really no sense in dwelling on that, right?

    Instead, we should focus on the positive side, the beautiful side of life, not all the unfairness and sadness that’s going on.🙂

    March 30, 2010 at 3:07 am

    • haha! uu! pasensiya na sa lahat! mukhang na ephasize ko ata yung negative side ng post..😀 hmn.. hindi ko nabigyang diin na we should focus on the grace of God, at hindi sa UNFAIR things na nakikita naten..

      March 30, 2010 at 5:47 am

      • LOL. Wa’g ka naman pong mag pasensya. Post mo to eh. Hahah.😉 I’m just saying na sana, we make an effort to see the positive. Kahit ako, guilty naman eh.🙂

        “Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,” – Philippians 3:13 (NIV)… (uy! kabisado pa) hehehe…

        March 31, 2010 at 4:57 am

  11. tayo ang nagsabi na life is unfair! ako, ikaw, siya!

    March 30, 2010 at 6:07 am

    • hmn.. tama Mizpah, maraming beses n nating nasabi yo sa sarili natin.. hindi man eksaktong salita.. ngunit sa paraan ng ating mga kilos at gawa, sa paraan kung paano tayo mag react.. o magkomento.. makailang ulit na din nating nasabi na “Life is unfair”…

      March 30, 2010 at 6:29 am

  12. Unfair ang buhay kapag hindi mo nakuha ang nais mo. Kapag nagdamot ang tadhana sayo, kapag naramdaman mo ang sakit sa halip na ginhawa.

    Pero kung ang nararamdaman mo ay ang mga kabaliktaran ng mga paghahanap at pagkukulang, masasalamin mo pa ba ang isang kaluluwang nagtatanong ng ganyan?

    Ginawa ang salitang ‘yan pero hindi ibig sabihin ‘yan na ang kahulugan.

    Maaari kang dayain ng iyong pandama pero kung kakapain mo pa ang ibang nakatago sa iyong BUHAY…iba pala ang UNFAIR.

    March 30, 2010 at 6:14 am

    • Maligayang pagbabalik Kulisap sa bahay ng mga Maskara.. Tama po.. Lahat ng mga sinabi nio..
      kuya kulisap.. ano po ba ang ibig sabihin para sa inyo ng salitang unfair?..

      March 30, 2010 at 6:41 am

      • Hindi ko pa ba nasabi?

        UNFAIR kapag naging MAKASARILI si J. Kulisap

        March 30, 2010 at 9:08 am

  13. True. If life were truly fair, we would all be the ones on the Cross.

    Which all the more magnifies the importance of this Season.

    thanks for this, Animsé

    March 30, 2010 at 7:01 am

    • Hello po Mommy Kaye! Good to see you again sa bahay po ng mga maskara..😦 hmn, medyo hindi na nga po ako nakadadalaw sa Bloghay ninyo..😦 hm, medyo hindi po kase ako marunong mag sunscribe sa mga dumadatkom.. but anyways.. maraming salamat po sa pagdaan..

        March 30, 2010 at 8:33 am

  14. life is really unfair . even if life is unfair we cannot deny the fact and stay out of reality that Jesus did not think that it is unfair for Him to die on the cross. We didn’t hear any word of complaint from Him and that opened our mind to stay focus and live a full life because we are forgiven and He was condemned.

    March 30, 2010 at 7:24 am

    • On that Cross of “Unfair”ness.. Orville.. Christ was thinking about us..

      He maybe almost in the midst of giving up.. but He thought about us..

      On how we will perish with out the shedding of the blood…

      On how we will die, without the power of that sacrifice…

      He thought of us…

      March 30, 2010 at 7:42 am

      • definitely true animse and until now we have all the grace we need to a live a life according to His words and still many times we fail to recognize the purpose of His death.

        how are you?

        April 1, 2010 at 11:29 pm

      • hehe, mabuti.. maraming salamat sa pagkamusta orville..
        (maraming salamat sa pagbalik.. napansin kong parang kasundo mo ang Lilang maskara ah?..)

        April 4, 2010 at 11:01 am

  15. alam mo yung song na Amazing Love (You are my King)

    I’m forgiven, because you were forsaken
    I’m accepted, you were condemned
    I’m alive and well, your Spirit is within me
    Because you died and rose again

    Amazing love, how can it be?
    That you’re my king would die for me
    Amazing love, I know it’s true
    It’s my joy to honor you, in all I do I honor you!

    March 30, 2010 at 7:52 am

    • You are my King, Jesus… You.. Are my King ♪♫♫…

  16. sakin naman, kanya-kanyang perspective lang naman yan sa tingin mo sa buhay. at kung patuloy nating titignan sa negative way ito, parating ganun lang rin ang kalalabasan. tama, life is unfair. it will forever be. pero we can’t stay like this forever. kelangan may gawin tayo para hindi matalo sa madayang laro. ;D

    umepal lang pala ako.😀

      March 31, 2010 at 11:56 am

      • “agyan mo kasi ng “magbasa mabuti” sa itaas… o kaya naman bigyan mo ng instruction na: “I-print ng colored at namnamin ang papel. Matapos namnamin, magpakulo ng isang litro ng tubig na galing sa Maria Christina Falls sa isang kaldero at ilagay ang papel na pinagprintan ng artikulo. Hayaang kumulo ng 20 minutos. Habang naghihintay, balikan ang artikulo sa WordPress at basahin ng 3 beses. Matapos pakuluin ang papel ng 20 minuto, palamigin at inumin ang tubig. Namnamin mabuti ang artikulo habang dumadaloy sa iyong mga veins and capillaries. Ulitin mula sa unang instruction hangga’t maaari.” Repeat chorus till fades…😀

        lagyan mo ng ganyan… akala tuloy ng lahat, emo-suicidal ka…😀

        March 31, 2010 at 10:25 pm

      • hehe.. patawa ka MD.. haha! bukod sa Larawan ng Pagiging MakaDiyos Md.. ang Lilang maskara ay Larawan din ng “hindi pagiging consistent”.. hehe.. patawad.. madaming bagay talaga ang hindi ko kayang mapanindigan.. kaya maraming beses.. nakatago ang aking maskara sa Mabuting Salita..

    me. i say, “life is fair”. yes, there are things that we haven’t that others have. but don’t we realize that there are also treasures that we have and others haven’t? and if life is unfair, we must start in ourselves to make LIFE FAIR…🙂
