W.W.I.D. What Would I Do?  (VR)

Years ago it was popular for Christians to wear bracelets with the initials W.W.J.D.--What Would Jesus Do? But to have fresh eyes on biblical narratives consider wearing a different reminder: W.W.I.D.-- “What Would IDo -- (if I were in this situation)?” People are the same today as there were in ancient times. Therefore,if you try to enter a biblical story and see a person behaving in a surprising or unusual way, let that be a signal for you to ask what you would have done in that situation.
