I just finished watching this video and it brought me a ton of joy to see the hearts of these kids. Listen closely for the response of the boy who wants to be a soccer player when he is asked to slap a girl.
I love it! He is so right in that Jesus would never want us to slap a girl, but instead He wants us to love, honor, and respect her. Jesus’s love is beautiful just like the boy’s answer. Check out what He said in John 8:
Jesus returned to the Mount of Olives, but early the next morning he was back again at the Temple. A crowd soon gathered, and he sat down and taught them. As he was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They put her in front of the crowd.
“Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery. The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?”
They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust.
When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman. Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”
“No, Lord,” she said.
And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.” John 8:1-11
We need to have that attitude as we interact and live with our friends, family, and the other people we run into in our lives, whether it be guys or girls. And although we’ll never be perfect, make it your goal to show Jesus’s love like these boys.
