Thought for the Day: Yesterday, we ordered dinner to be delivered. I could track it, and at one point it said the driver was in our neighborhood. The next moment, there was no tracking. A few moments later, I got an email saying my food had been delivered which was followed by a request for me to rate my experience. I was hungry, and there was no food at my door. It took quite a bit longer for my food to arrive. Though not terribly thrilled with the service, this was no evil scheme. It was not the sinister work of the wicked. It was a mistake, and mistakes are going to happen. But what happens when people and systems leave the hungry empty and the thirsty without drink? What happens when the poor are discredited with lying words? This is when prophets stand and speak, when the emissaries of the Holy will not be silenced. Listen to their words and do not turn away. Listen and be confronted by their defiant declarations. Prophet is not a vocation relegated to some ancient time. They are among us, faithfully speaking the painful truth.
Prayer: Give me both ears to hear and a spirit willing to be moved if I am part of the problem in our world. I do not wish to be a fool or to participate in acts that leave people wanting. Lord, invite me into the good work of your Kingdom, your holy dream for all creation. Amen.
