What gifts do you have that others would benefit from right now? I am not a cook. I am not a medical provider. I am a storyteller.

I know that most people could use help telling their stories. I also know that seeing is believing.

The first thing I lead with on my stories is how these restaurants are solving the audiences problem. That problem is cooking meals at home. There is a point for most people these days that they could use a break.

The second thing most people are interested in is how they can get some of their favorite restaurants food during this crisis, since they cannot go the the restaurant and dine-in.

One of my good friends Greg Thompson talked about him being taught the lesson of do what you are good at and let others do what they are good at on a mission trip.

While in another country the team he was working with were doing some construction. Up on the hill watching them were what they learned were the local construction guys who could use the work. 

They took up money and paid the guys to work and Greg then did what he was best at doing and that was taking photos.

I am sure you have been in Greg’s shoes as well. I know many of my friends talk about how they tried to save money only to have to call the experts sooner or later to do it right.

Two things I hope this time of crisis is teaching all of us. First know what you are good at doing and help others using those gifts of yours. Second, hire those experts who do it better than you whenever possible.

It is together we do community. While we all need to practice social distancing we can still call and connect with our neighbors.

Time to Give – Not Take!

March Madness means something totally different for 2020. Just a few weeks ago all of our plans were so different than what we ended up doing for this month.

I am watching so many of my friends and neighbors feeling the stress of the uncertainty that CORONA-19 Virus has brought to our lives.

I think this is the best time to reach out and help rather than looking for every way we can survive.

I work with restaurants most of my time. These past two weeks I have looked at local restaurants in my town and could sense how they needed our support. So I reached out to Slopes BBQ where my family has been eating ever since I moved to Roswell in 1993.

I asked Bob White if he would let me do a video to showcase his restaurant and team.
I realized that the number one thing they do is provide a service that meets a real need for many people. Most people get cabin fever and need to get out and they also get tired of eating their own cooking. For some people they don’t even know how to cook.

Here is the video I did to help remind those near Slopes BBQ that they are still open for carry out.

Do me a favor and share the video to your social media posts if you live nearby. Hopefully this will inspire others to help your neighbor.

Proverbs 3:28 tells us “Do not say to your neighbor, “Go, and come again, tomorrow I will give it”—when you have it with you.” In this verse, a neighbor is someone who asks for help. We are taught here that a neighbor is to be helped quickly, immediately. It also implies that our neighbor is someone we see regularly.
