Today my wife Barbara and I will make it a point to eat at Chick-fil-A. We often do eat there because it is good food served by the most polite young people we have ever seen. It also represents the ideal of a company guided by biblical principles. After expressing one of those principles – belief in traditional marriage – it has been severely attacked by politicians and the press.
We will be going there to support freedom of speech and Christian values, but we will be mindful of the great question from a couple of decades ago, “What would Jesus do?” Jesus went out of his way to be with people who were struggling with moral problems. He never bullied them, but he loved them enough to offer forgiveness and then told them to “sin no more.”
So we will go there today to take a stand for what the Bible teaches, but hopefully, in the spirit of Jesus.
