For God's Glory

I'm reading through the book of Exodus, and as I am reading, I began to think just how unfair it was that God continually hardened the heart of Pharaoh in order to show His amazing power.  But then what struck me, was even though the things God did to Pharaoh and his people were harsh, had they been God fearing people, they would have followed the directions God gave and would not have received harm.  Except for when God comes to kill the first born of each family, but God is purposely hardening Pharaoh's heart.  Is that really fair?

We know that when someone dies, they go to heaven where they get to meet God and sing praises to Him.  So, with that knowledge, if our first born was taken to show a whole people the power of the Lord, would that be a blessing or a curse?  Knowing that we would see them when we got to heaven.  Just some food for thought, had to pass it on.
