15 They came into Jerusalem. After entering the temple, he threw out those who were selling and buying there. He pushed over the tables used for currency exchange and the chairs of those who sold doves. 16 He didn’t allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. 17 He taught them, “Hasn’t it been written, My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations? But you’ve turned it into a hideout for crooks.” 18 The chief priests and legal experts heard this and tried to find a way to destroy him. They regarded him as dangerous because the whole crowd was enthralled at his teaching. 19 When it was evening, Jesus and his disciples went outside the city. (Mark 11:15-19, CEB)
I have mixed feelings about the four letters WWJD.
What Would Judas Do? I have toyed with this change to the letters meaning. Because Judas I think gets a bad rap, but that is a post for another time.
What Would Jesus Do? The phrase makes us think that our actions are too rough, that we are acting with anger more than we should. But we have to remember that WWJD could be turning the tables and driving the money changers out of the place they are.
We need to do what God has called us to do and if that means we whip the money changers and turn some tables, then that is what we do.
Love People, Love God.
