How to use "Undeserving" in context?


Some people may say that those who are undeserving of good fortune or happiness in life are simply unlucky. However, luck can only truly intervene once something bad has happened. Morality tells us that only those who have merit should expect good fortune and happiness in life, and that misfortune should befall those who do not deserve it. This is why some people believe that "bad luck" should befall those who have done bad things. They believe that this is simply the universe's way of punishing them.

Despite the belief that bad luck should befall the undeserving, this is not the case in all cases.
