I am at the gas station. I see an elderly man struggling to walk across the snow and ice through the parking lot. Do I pretend I don’t see him, or offer him help? What would Jesus do?
I am at school and I witness another kid getting picked on by a person, or group of people. Do I walk on passed, or offer help? What would Jesus do?
I sense someone is depressed or sad. Do I say nothing at all and ignore them, or show them some love and compassion? What would Jesus do?
I am aware of a person who never has nice clothes to wear, doesn’t have very much to eat at lunch, and what’s more, they get made fun of. Do I join in? Say nothing? Or act kindly toward them, offering them my friendship, as well as something to eat? Maybe in the friendship, I can give them some nice clothes to wear. What would Jesus do?
I know a girl who is pregnant, and she is thinking about abortion. As a Christian, I know abortion is murder. Do I say nothing at all, fearful of any confrontation? Or do I lovingly share the truth of God’s Word about abortion, and offer her any help where I can as she goes through the pregnancy, and even after she has the baby? What would Jesus do?
I am tired. It’s been a very long day. My stomach is growling, and I have things I want to do. Someone stops and asks me for help. Should I tell them I don’t have time, or with gladness, put aside my plans and take a moment to help them? What would Jesus do?
I come across someone who has forgotten their lunch money, and they’re too shy to ask the school, or anyone for help. Should I just feel bad for them, and go on with my day? Or should I sacrifice some money, or my lunch, and give to them? What would Jesus do?
A friend of mine secretly does drugs. Now she is offering them to me, telling me how great it is and that it’s the coolest thing to do. Do I give in and try it? Say no thanks, and that’s it? Or should I tell her no, and explain to her clearly about Jesus Christ and share the good news of His Word with her? What would Jesus do?
How can I even call myself a follower of Jesus Christ if I do what I WANT TO DO and NOT what Jesus wants me to do? If in ALL things, I don’t ask, What would Jesus do? Then I can’t say that I truly belong to Him.
I am His reflection in a world whose only hope is Him! I am His light in a world of darkness. I have two choices: look like the world, or look like Jesus? I want to look like Jesus! If I do not tell them, how will they know?
What would Jesus do?
