Here is a wonderful post written by someone who serves both with The STORY Kids and The STORY Teens. This has been taken, with permission, from a recent post of hers on social media. Thank you Brittany!

“Harsh reality: you can’t change other people, you can only change yourself. Last night was one of those nights that I never like to reflect or dwell on, but today I felt like I needed to. Working in the restaurant industry can turn me into the person that I don’t want to be. Negative, selfish, judgmental, etc. Don’t get me wrong, I love talking to people and making their experience at my restaurant the best for them; BUT sometimes, it gets tough. I’m sure all my server homies can attest to this. Last night I was not treated very good (this is not the first time something like this has happened), and usually I would talk about how mean and rude people can be for treating me this way. I would get overly frustrated because I didn’t think I deserved to be treated that way. BUT this time I took a few deep breaths and I thought to myself, I may be the only Jesus that some people ever see. As much as I would want to before, I couldn’t be short, standoffish, or a little sassy because Jesus wouldn’t do so. Although I am human and still get upset, I treated this table with as much grace and kindness as I could. Now, I know I have a LONG way to go, but my hope is that I am as rich in love, slow to anger, and as kind as Jesus is in my every day life. This is someone that I long to become. I’m thankful to have such a role model and reflecting on my reactions to situations does the heart good. The only person that I can change is myself, and it starts with recognition and change of heart.” #liveabetterSTORY

be-rich-with-year-website-and-verse-001Here are a few more ways people, who are part of The STORY Church, decided to Be Rich (In good deeds, that is) as part of our money give away. Note: Be Rich is a campaign where The STORY Church has given away time, energy and money freely to others. As part of this, we took up an offering with the purpose of giving every penny away. With a portion of this money, every family that showed up one particular Sunday were given an envelope with money in it to give away. These are summaries of some of their stories.

-I heard that _____________ Dad was in very bad health so I decided to give him the money.

-_____________ has been having a really difficult time lately. They’ve dealt with trying to find a job and with what they are supposed to do with their future. I gave them the money and added some of my own as just a bit of encouragement.

-I want to give my money to the girl in Mexico that we heard about (see previous post).

Keep ’em coming everybody!
