Occasionally I will watch the show by that name on ABC hosted by John Quinones. If you are not familiar with the show, let me explain. They hire actors to portray different characters, attitudes, and situations in a public setting. Hidden cameras catch the general public’s reactions and responses. The viewer often sees that common decency is not completely lost in this country. The scenario begins ends with the challenging question: “What would you do?”
Facebook memes pop-up on my feed asking, “Would you slap your brother/best friend for $1,000,000?” Why is that not a hard question . . . “Hey, Doug, where can we meet?”
The old jingle asks, “What would you do . . . for a Klondike Bar?”
I guess the underlying thought to each of these are: How far are you willing to go? What is _____________________ worth to you?
How far are you willing to go?
- For the One who created you?
- For the One who died in your place?
- For the One who sustains the universe?
- For the One who delivers from wrath?
Jesus asked the same question, what is your soul worth? “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul?” Mark 8:36-37.
He answers that the value of your soul is His blood, His life, His comfort, and Himself.
What would you do . . . for the Savior?

Would I peaceably accept a slap from my brother for $500,000? Sure, where do you want to meet?
If I ever get a real offer. . . .
