WORD of the DAY
“Love justice, you judges of the earth, think of the Lord with goodness of heart and seek Him with a simple heart. He will let Himself be found by those who trust Him .” (Wisdom 1: 1-2)
How shall I live this Word?
The justice this passage speaks of is not that of Civil Law. It is rather an atmosphere of conscience and of heart that has welcomed and lives goodness: the one that God Himself pours into us when we relate to Him with simplicity.
Warning! Simplicity is never being simplistic or nonsensical but rather the careful and serene search for the will of God in our days. Thus life takes place in the sun of God’s Presence in our thinking and working.
Lord, it is consoling for me to think of Your justice, an atmosphere of goodness and of encouragement to choose the good in my thinking and acting.
The voice of Nelson Mandela, South African Activist
We know what should be done. What is missing is the will to do it.
