2 Questions That Are Better Than WWJD?

What Would Jesus Do?

Never really liked that phrase. There is too much room for “interpretation” with that mindset. I have seen so many people in and outside the church harmed so deeply by the “religious” and those with judgmental mindsets!

When you can “interpret” WWJD, it opens the door for us to justify our own righteousness and throw rocks at others’.

I think we need to change the way most of us view ourselves and others. The more closely we align that thinking with Jesus, the better we will be…

Ourselves

We should ask ourselves, WDJD (What did Jesus do)?

Am I doing those things:

  • Loving the least of these
  • Building relationships with those outside the Kingdom
  • Building leaders that will change things tomorrow
  • Caring for the sick and orphaned
  • Defending the defenseless

Notice: We should only compare OURSELVES with Jesus, not others with Jesus!

Others

When we look at others we should ask, WDJS (What did Jesus see)?

Do I look at others as Jesus did:

  • Am I crying over their lostness
  • Do I focus on present failure or future potential
  • Do I see a miracle in the works
  • Am I believing the Father can use them powerfully
  • What I see is not reality; reality lies in the mind of the Father

Notice: We look at others like Jesus would, not looking to see if they are LIKE Jesus!
