I grew up in a Roman Catholic household and went to Christian affiliated schools for my entire life. I was a member of FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) in high school, and more recently involved with CGF (College Golf Fellowship), two Christian organizations that offer support to athletes. Amidst all the unrest, I wavered back and forth between sides, constantly hearing bad things about the left and the right and seeing violence thrown around on both sides. So, it shocks me it took so long to have this revelation. Uh, duh. Look towards your faith! As Christians, we are called to live how Jesus lived on Earth. WWJD. What would Jesus do?
One thing I love about the Bible is that it offers countless, timeless metaphors. The first one that came to mind is the Story of the Shepherd and his Lost Sheep. Jesus tells his disciples that if a truly “good” shepherd loses just one of his hundred sheep, he will leave the others and go find that lost sheep. The shepherd still cares for all his sheep, but the lost sheep takes precedence over the other sheep that are doing totally fine. This relates very closely to what is happening in America today, as we have many lost sheep in our society. The cries of many ripped through the nation starting on May 26 and continue through today. I do not have to brief you on this, you probably already know what I am talking about. With that said: WWJD.
