One of the neatest, yet sometimes controversial, fads to come around in quite a while was the WWJD (What would Jesus do?) bracelet. Of course it didn’t just stop with the bracelet, it went on to be a slogan sold on just about anything that could be written on: cups, T-shirts, stationary, billboards; you name it.
Critics claimed it was a bit arrogant for Christians to wear their faith on their wardrobe. But I actually saw the WWJD movement as a reminder that believers in the Christian faith were called to travel a narrower path than the rest of society.
That garbage laying next to the garbage can, even though we had no part in its being there, would probably be thrown away if Jesus passed by it.
The man standing on the side of the road with a “will work for food” sign, even though he might not really be willing to come rake your leaves, would probably be offered assistance if Jesus encountered him.
That child who lives a thousand miles away and needs help, even though others nearby refuse to offer aid, would be comforted if Jesus heard about her.
The WWJD movement was not about shouting the ministry of Jesus to others. It was about reminding our thinking brain that a new heart was to be guiding our decisions. The bracelet, the T-shirt, and the billboard were to remind the current believers to always keep their faith in motion, avoiding the tendency to slip back into worldly tendencies.
Our decisions should always be guided by the greatest decision-maker who ever walked the earth
