What Would Jesus Do? A Response To Yesterday’s Supreme Court Decision

A Guest Post by Mariah Jean

My friend and fellow blogger, Mariah Jean, posted this on Facebook yesterday and as soon as I read it I knew I needed to share.

Her perspective/response is that of a young christian mother and I think she hit the nail on the head.

I couldn’t have said it better myself… So I didn’t.

Seeing so many voices, so many opinions today, and wondering if my thoughts on marriage matters much; if my comfortability, or lack thereof, with today’s developments has anything to do with what really matters, what God is going to do anyway.

Because I’m not sure it sets well with me that God would allow a man who fathered (but seemingly neglected) dozens of children by multiple women, who committed adultery and murder, to STILL retain his status as “a man after God’s own heart”, repentance or not.

I’m not sure how I feel that God would have multiple conversations with, and bestow unlimited wisdom (which to me, seems nearly the greatest gift in the universe), and fame, and riches to a man who kept a 1000 (A THOUSAND!) women under his roof, having sex with ALL of them.

I’m not sure I’m comfortable with stuff like that.

And maybe God isn’t either. But that didn’t keep Him from seeking relationship with them, regardless of how he felt about their decisions.

Maybe, like all of us, God knows what it’s like to have friends that do things He’s not too fond of, sees them make decisions He knows will hurt them, take paths that He wishes they didn’t for their own welfare. And sometimes, He let them travel their chosen path without Him.

But one thing we never see: we never, not once, EVER see Him not want relationship with them. Somehow, their family life and sexual relationships didn’t keep Him from rejoicing when their hearts sought His. Yes, there were always new horizons, fresh lessons He drew them into, always seeking to see them grow.

But for some reason, He never started with their marriages. He ALWAYS started with their hearts.

I don’t know that my thoughts matter because of this truth: “The Supreme Court can do many things, but the Supreme Court cannot get Jesus back in that tomb. Jesus of Nazareth is still alive. He is still calling the universe toward his kingdom.”
