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.
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.
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, and resolve to read their words or listen to their voice with an open mind.
