From the Book of John,
The Just shall stand upright, yea,
But what, who is just?
Indeed who determines what is just, who behaves justly? The sixty-four dollar question, for sure.
Who is just, and when is just action called for? Always, the easy answer; hard to come by sometimes, most times.
When you’re stuck in the dark, in a bind, in a struggle so deep, it’s hard to be just, a struggle to be.
And yet He says, to this we are called, each of us. It’s not should we be, but how can we be, just?
Francis said recently, something that might guide us:
“Prayer liberates us from our instinct toward violence. It is a gaze directed toward God, so that He might take care of the human heart.”
Prayer leads the way, to choose just action, just action each day.
