You’ve probably seen WWJD or heard the phrase, “what would Jesus do?” It’s a good phrase to live by.
I’ve been thinking of WWJP lately, What Would Jesus Post?
Christians are representatives of Jesus. What we say and do reflects who Jesus is. How are we representing Him to the world?
Some of us have strong opinions and convictions concerning the gay lifestyle, abortion, murder, politics, even sports. But before we post something, it’s wise to wait. Spend a few minutes asking Jesus if this were something He would share. It’s not our responsibility to convict others of their sin. It doesn’t work anyway. We are to do all things in love. Loving others doesn’t mean we approve of their sin.
Jesus doesn’t point a finger. He loves the sinner. Jesus washed Judas feet even though he knew Judas would betray him. That doesn’t mean Jesus approved of Judas sin. He loved Judas. Jesus died on the cross for Judas. He died on the cross for my sin and for all sin. When we believe He died for us and live our remaining days following Him, then we have the promise of eternity with Him.
We all know there is no perfect life. But it’s easy to forget that when on social media and only see the “what appears to be the perfect life” posts. If you feel jealousy or envy while scrolling than it might be time to step back, take a break from it all. Don’t get caught up in the deception. No one has a perfect life. I heard a saying, “if we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.”
I want to use my words wisely. I don’t always get it right. I’m glad there is a delete key. But unfortunately, sometimes it’s too late to delete because the damage is already done.
I want to follow Jesus example.
I invite you to join me in thinking before we post something. Will it benefit anyone or will it hurt someone?
How are you sharing His example of Faith, Hope and Love?
