We will be wronged a lot in the course of our lives.
Each of us has the freedom to either be wronged and not take action against our oppressor or pursue the justice of this world.
Yet it is when we have the willingness to be wronged and to suffer loss that we are given the opportunity to keep Christ’s virtue at a cost that this world is not willing to pay.
I know wonderful people who have suffered severe wrongdoings.
Thanks to their surrender and faith in the wise ways of God, they make a decision everyday not to pursue worldly justice. Their peace and joy overflow and inspire.
This way of life, which mirrors Jesus’ spirituality, resonates with few of us. Yet this is the life that rewards us with peace that exceeds all understanding. This is the divine life worth living.
