WWJD: Not Just a Jewelry Trend

These “granola” rope bracelets convey a powerful message
WWJD%3A+Not+Just+a+Jewelry+Trend

During the 2022 cross country season, Maeve Donahue, a teammate and friend of mine, gifted me and the rest of my team with WWJD bracelets. These 90s inspired rope bracelets are available in a variety of colors, all with the phrase WWJD written on them.

This stands for “What would Jesus do?”

The bracelet is a constant reminder of our Christian faith, a reminder that comes when we take a single moment to look down at our wrists.

Although it is easy to be a Christian on Sunday mornings, our faith needs to be a part of our daily life. The Gospel of John says that “whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did” (1 John 2:6). That is what being a Christian is really about.

As I wore the bracelet, I found myself referencing that simple question of “What would Jesus do?” on countless occasions throughout my daily life. The bracelet held me accountable to putting my money where my mouth is as a Christian.

We make thousands of decisions everyday. In every single one of these decisions, from the big ones to the small ones, we need to be asking ourselves “what would Jesus do?” if we want to place our faith at the center of our lives.
