WWJD (What Would Jesus Do?)

Saw beggar in the street,
I walked on by, hurried to meet...
but then I stopped, turned around
and asked myself,
"What would Jesus do?"
then I knew.

Sherry was raped the other day
called me crying, wishing to die.
but I was busy, then I stopped...
and asked myself,
"What would Jesus do?"
then I knew.

Got an email full of hate,
said please die, that's your fate
I started to type... then stopped
and asked myself,
"What would Jesus do?"
then I knew.

(uh, this is kinda different)

I saw some children crying,
their kite was up a tree
and then I stopped and asked myself
"What kind of person would I be?"
I could care less what Jesus thinks,
or in my place what he'd do.
But then I looked at their sad faces,
and right away I knew

If the world was dying
too many children crying
no more birds-no sound
just chaos, war, pollution, crisis
all that could be found
I would ask myself and you
"Tell me what would Jesus do"

This was very interesting! It was a lovely application of that familiar phrase. I remember reading the book for a school assignment last year, and these verses captured the goal of the book quite well. Great work!

To understand what Jesus would do, we must not only know who He is, but allow Him to be the centre of our life.
This is a great poem for thought and reflection.

Very good. I wish I could help and edit but the poem is already perfect and my edit would be stupid but maybe I should try anyways.

Hi, I am offering an open invitation to everyone to edit this and add more to it. In this particular case, I am also opening this to editing whatever is there, not just add to it.
