Fair?

People seem to be interested in what is fair.  It drives a lot of the cultural conversation and politics at least in the US.  Folks tend to evaluate whether something is true by whether it is fair.  Problem is, fair in whose eyes?
Is God fair?  Thoughts at DTTB.
The Bible doesn’t talk much about fair.  The concept only appears three times in Leviticus 19:15; Isaiah 11:4; and Colossians 4:1 depending on your translation.  The Bible is much more interested in justice, mercy, and grace under the umbrella of the Sovereignty of God.

There is a passage that will cause those who are interested in fairness no end of grief.  Look at Habakkuk 1:6, 11.  In answer to Habakkuk’s prayer God tells him that He is raising up the Chaldeans to punish Israel and then tells Habakkuk that He will hold the Chaldeans guilty for doing so.  Fair?

How do you respond to that?
