WWJV" whom would Jesus vote for?

Written by Rev. James L. Snyder


My favorite novel, as a young person, was In His Steps, written by Charles Sheldon. The premise of this novel is simple. A group of people inrepparttar church made a spiritual pact that before doing or saying anything they would preface it by askingrepparttar 118144 probing question, "What would Jesus do?" (WWJD).

If you have read that novel, you know this simple query put everyone's life in jeopardy. Everyone, that is, who was serious about it.

Some want enough religion to keep from gettingrepparttar 118145 real thing but not enough to change or inconvenience their lifestyle. Not everyone is serious about his or her religious life.

Many people want to go to heaven but they want to do it their way and in their own good time. If these people treated their jobrepparttar 118146 same way they treat God, they would not have a job for long.

It's a good question: What would Jesus do? I have thought a lot about it myself and must confess it has done some good in my direction. Now, whenever I see those initials WWJD it gives me some pause to think about what I am doing. And, if you have to know, I've had to not do some things I had projected.

Recently, in light ofrepparttar 118147 WWJD resurgence, I have seen bracelets, and jewelry and other paraphernalia with these initials, reminding people ofrepparttar 118148 message. I'm all for anything that will encourage people to dorepparttar 118149 right thing, regardless of any inconvenience.

I think, however, that some people have taken a left whenrepparttar 118150 road map indicated a right.

For example: Someone wrote a book on What Would Jesus Eat? I did not readrepparttar 118151 book but I'm guessing he ate a lot of fish but absolutely no pizza, let alone a nice slice of New York-style cheesecake.

Often I have wondered how our Lord survived without cheesecake. Don't tell anyone, but I have a sneaking suspicion he would have enjoyed a slice, as well as me.

Some advertising genius got onrepparttar 118152 wagon and struck uprepparttar 118153 band with "What would Jesus drive?" I could be way out of line here but I'm thinking Jesus drove a donkey, if you can drive a donkey.

One ofrepparttar 118154 last things he did was to ride a donkey intorepparttar 118155 city of Jerusalem. Apart fromrepparttar 118156 lowly donkey, Jesus wore out a lot of sandal leather.

If I'm going to "drive what Jesus drove," I will have to turn my car in for a low mileage donkey. Donkeys are great on gas but it isrepparttar 118157 post-donkey problem that keeps piling up.

I know whatrepparttar 118158 Mistress ofrepparttar 118159 Parsonage would say (and do) if I brought a donkey home some evening. Mr. Donkey and Yours Truly would be traveling companions, to be sure.

The question burning in my mind during these pre-election days is simply; "Whom would Jesus vote for" (WWJV) inrepparttar 118160 upcoming elections?

It has been a long morning and you need a mental break. You start thinking of your weekend plans and jump on your messaging program to make plans with a friend. You haverepparttar movie times and a chat box up on your screen and what happens, your supervisor walks up behind you! You think to yourself Murphy's law is in full effect. What do you do when you get busted surfing or chatting at work? The situation all depends on how you react and handle yourself. Here are some helpful techniques/excuses you may be able to use:

1. I am looking for a job that pays more money. (the defensive excuse)

2. Oh no! I need IT to come out, I have a blinking light that wont go away. (the play dumb excuse)

3. Keep your company website minimized and maximize it fast whenrepparttar 118143 boss comes by and admit you want to learn more aboutrepparttar 118144 company. (the cover-up!)

4. You were investigating stuff for a surprise party you were planning on throwing for (who ever just walked in) and nowrepparttar 118145 plans are ruined, way to go! (the guilt factor)

5. I was just comforting a friend who lost a relative to bovinexctrementitis. (the compassion excuse)
