What would Jesus do?

I can't tell you what he would do, but I can read about what he did.

He came and he showed himself genuine. He showed himself to anyone who would see. He was all that and a bag of chips, but he struggled with sadness and loss. He had an amazing gift and way with people. He was so awesome that it can be easy to forget that he didn't hang out with the socially "right" people. He hung out with the tax collectors. He was authentic and he showed them themselves.

He did not make them do anything. He just offered his gift. And he loved them. He loved them inspite of themselves. He loved them because of who he was and is.


I need that kind of love. The love that is in spite of me. I try to give that love. Without judgement. Just true. Authentic. Love. I don't deserve it. None of us really do. Love. Real. Pure. Just because. No reliance on Just Cause.

That's what He did.

  1. Yeah, but it's hard to fit all of that on a nylon bracelet.
