Dr. Beckwith’s Friday Inspiration For July 15th

Happy Friday, Team, and greetings to all!

We’re at the end of another week, and I am grateful we have made it to another Friday. I pray you have experienced a wonderful week that was fun and fulfilling. I know you love your work, and some of the stories I hear about you warm my heart.

As you prepare for the weekend, I hope you enter it with a happy attitude. What I hope for most is that when you return on Monday, you return refreshed and with an attitude of positivity and enthusiasm. I don’t know how anyone can work for an organization like this one and not be positive, upbeat, and always looking to what God will do next. Some of the things I have seen Him do, get me pumped up!

Yet, I am sure you have worked with people who cannot help but be pessimistic. Some will say, “I am not a pessimist; I am a realist.” Okay. But there is a fine line between the two, and I pray daily that God will show us when we are nearing that line. Here’s something I want you to consider: pessimistic people typically look at the world negatively, while being a realist is more about truth and objectivity. Realists do not automatically see the world as negative.

I don’t know if you are a pessimist; only you know how you approach your life and work. But if you are a Believer, consider this if and when you find yourself moving towards the pessimistic side: Philippians 4:8-9 – “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

Have a wonderful 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.
  3. 3 – Inform your invited guests of what the Fostering Community Care meeting will be about, and let them know that they will receive a follow up call from the organization
  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.
