Dr. Beckwith’s Friday Inspiration For January 26th

Happy Friday, Team,


As we approach the end of another week, I am inspired to share a message that resonates with the wisdom of picking our battles wisely. We must recognize that only some challenges demand energy or attention in our fast-paced landscape. Let us reflect on the profound truth that discernment plays a pivotal role in our journey.


Proverbs 19:11 says, “A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.” Proverbs 19 says A wish person is prudent, diligent, and honest.” So, intelligent people know how to hold their tongue, and their grandeur is to forgive. In our daily interactions and endeavors, let this principle guide us. Choose the battles that align with our mission, values, and the greater good, and consider the ones that may be distractions on our path to positive impact.


We are united by a common purpose as a team—to serve and uplift our communities. To do so, we must direct our focus, be resilient, and bring a strategic approach to the challenges that come our way. Not every disagreement, obstacle, or setback is worth a fight. Draw strength from understanding that our collective energy is a precious resource we channel most effectively toward the causes that truly matter. This perspective applies both professionally and personally.


In the spirit of unity, let’s strive to foster an environment where collaboration thrives, we resolve conflicts gracefully, and our shared goals guide our actions. Together, we can navigate the complexities before us, confident that our discernment in choosing battles will lead us to more significant victories.


As we head into the weekend, please reflect on the battles worth fighting, recognizing the transformative power of focused efforts and the wisdom to let go when needed.


I wish you all a restful and reflective weekend.

Ambassadors are short-term volunteers who open doors for our organization in the community, introducing new people at our bi-monthly Fostering Community Care event. These are one hour awareness events only (no solicitations are made) to expose people to the great work of LSS Community Care. To become an Ambassador here are your responsibilities:
  1. 1 – Attend at least one Fostering Community Care event during the calendar year
  2. 2 – Host or invite and bring 10-15 guests to one Fostering Community Care event within 3 months of your attending one yourself.

  4. 4 – Ambassadors will complete their commitment after bringing 10-15 persons within the 3 month time period. An Ambassador has the option to complete after one term, continue for another 3 month term or move into another role on the team.
