In the midst of my photo sulking and refusal to “Click to add these horrible photos of your butt to your timeline” requests from Facebook I got to thinking, what it would be like if Jesus had a Facebook account. Which brings me to the title, WWJT.
Who Would Jesus Tag?
Despite his popularity with the wealthy people of power in the United States, I don’t think Jesus would tag himself in photos in front of the Capitol Building in D.C.. I doubt there would be pictures of him at the President’s Gala Oscar Party in L.A. or in the luxury box at the Super Bowl (no matter how many times they thank him on the field.) No, I think that Jesus’ Facebook photo album would be filled instead with random selfies.
Here I am, hanging out with the homeless in the park.
Here I am, weeping on the sidewalk in Egypt.
Here I am, sitting with my friend in the jail cell.
Here I am singing with the head start kids at circle time.
This isn’t to say that others would not tag him –
“Here I am with Jesus on my mission trip.”
“Here I am with Jesus at the hospital”
“Here I am with Jesus watching the sunrise”
I’m still not going to post any more photos of myself on Facebook but I’m willing to let myself be tagged in one with Jesus.
