The Forward Day by Day Meditation

Today's Meditation

WEDNESDAY, January 19                  Wulfstan of Worcester

Hebrews 6:11-12 And we want each one of you to show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope to the very end, so that you may not become sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

The fight for justice, for the sake of the widow, orphan, and poor, requires us to honor and learn from those who came before us in the struggle for liberation. Prominent liberation theologians like Ada María Isasi-Díaz and James Cone, to name a few, advocated for justice, access, and equity for the marginalized. If we stay the course and continue their good work, we will see the fruit of our labors in the end.

Even if things do not change right now, the injustices we face or fight will begin to unravel over time. If we imitate the peace and justice makers before us, through faith, we inherit the wisdom of training our eyes on Jesus and guarding our spirit from becoming sluggish in the work set before us.
