Justice Requires Openness

Reflect

To follow Jesus is to commit ourselves to justice. This requires inward change more often than we would like and can be a complicated journey. May this prayer help us live the way of Jesus more authentically in our own hearts.


Pray

Jesus,
I sometimes resist
when my perspective
is challenged,
when others cry
“injustice”
over something
I cannot see.

Make my heart
humble and teachable

to witness
the experience of others

so that I can best discern
where the pursuit
of justice leads.

Amen.


Act

Identify one thing that has been labeled a “justice issue” but makes you feel uncomfortable. Find at least one thoughtful, clear-headed voice who can share an opposing perspective with you. Resolve to read or listen to that person’s words with an open mind.
