Grace and Justice

We often blame God for the injustices done to us and harbor in our souls the bitter feeling that God has not been fair toward us.  Even if we recognize that He is gracious, we think that He has not been gracious enough.  We think we deserve more grace. . . What is wrong with that sentence? . . . It is impossible for anyone, anywhere, anytime to deserve grace.  Grace by definition is undeserved. Only justice can be deserved.  ~ R.C. Sproul, The Holiness of God
