Dr. Beckwith’s Friday Inspiration For November 3rd

Happy Friday LSSSC Team Members!

As we approach the weekend, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the importance of perseverance and GRIT in our professional and personal lives. These qualities are the driving force behind our successes, and they are deeply rooted in our values.

In the book of Romans, chapter 5, verses 3-4, the Bible reminds us, “Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope.” This verse speaks to the transformative power of perseverance. Through our challenges and trials, we have the opportunity to grow stronger, develop character, and ultimately find hope.

GRIT, which stands for Growth, Resilience, Initiative, and Tenacity, is a concept that perfectly aligns with this biblical wisdom. It’s about continually pushing ourselves to become better, bouncing back from setbacks, taking the initiative to face challenges, and holding onto our goals with unwavering tenacity.

I encourage each of you to embrace GRIT in your work and in your lives. Understand that the difficulties we encounter are not stumbling blocks but stepping stones to personal and professional growth. With the right attitude and determination, we can achieve greatness together.

Let us remind ourselves that it is the daily commitment to persevere, to endure, and to maintain our GRIT that will lead us to success. As a team, we are here to support one another on this journey, and together, we can achieve remarkable things.

May you all have a blessed and inspiring weekend, filled with the strength of perseverance and the power of GRIT.

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.
