Remember WWJD? It became popular in the United States in the 1990s. The phrase is a reminder of their belief to act in a manner that would demonstrate the love of Jesus through actions.
Lately I’ve been thinking, something I am doing more of these days. What WOULD Jesus Do? Our savior is attributed many attributes and we Christians are reminded to emulate these; 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.
Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not want what belongs to others. It does not brag. It is not proud. It does not dishonor other people. It does not look out for its own interests. It does not easily become angry. It does not keep track of other people’s wrongs. Love is not happy with evil. But it is full of joy when the truth is spoken.It always protects. It always trusts. It always hopes. It never gives up.
The final four sentences is Jesus. He protects, trusts, is hope and never gives up. We humans talk a lot, we even make cool bracelets. More than the talk and hype, we need to protect each other. We need to trust before we doubt. We need to hope because sometimes that’s all that can be done. And never stop trying.
Remember what Jesus would do and what he did and why.
