A joyful journey: Advent day by day

Friday: "Don’t pan the prophets"

(Isaiah 48:17-19; Matthew 11:16-19)

God sends us in every age teachers and prophets. But when they do not fit our image (the wrong color, gender, ethnic group) we criticize and belittle them, refusing to accept their message. Neither Jesus nor John the Baptist could satisfy everyone’s expectations. But, “Wisdom is vindicated by her works.”
 
Name a contemporary prophet whose deeds inspire you to greater goodness.
