The Way It Is

Part of yesterday's readings from the Magnificat daily prayer guide included the following Scripture and observation:

Let us beset the just one, because he is obnoxious to us;
he sets himself against our doings,
Reproaches us for transgressions of the law
and charges us with violations of our training.
He professes to have knowledge of God
and styles himself a child of the Lord.
To us he is the censure of our thoughts;
merely to see him is a hardship for us. (Wisdom 2:12–14)

Disciples who follow Jesus faithfully must expect to follow him into dislike, ridicule, even persecution from those who find the Gospel threatening to their ways of thinking and acting.

Look around our world and listen to what is being said in the media.... it's happening right now!
