What would Jesus do? How are we supposed to know? The Bible doesn’t tell us what He would do in all situations. In the novel In His Steps by Charles Sheldon, the characters live a year of their lives asking themselves the famous question, “What would Jesus do?”, before making decisions. Often, what the characters decide results in the loss of money, and a lot of it.
So, how do we figure out what Jesus would do? Ask, “Why?”. “Why would Jesus do this?” “Why wouldn’t He?” If the characters of Sheldon’s awful book had done this, things would have gone better for all of them.
