Giving youth pastors the tools they need to make and shape disciples.

What Will You Do With This When You Get It?

I just read this story about Kellie Marie Tran. It’s a feel good story that makes you wish all actors felt like this, but Kellie shares something that we should all be in tune with.

She says.

“In my 8 years as a struggling actor, I came to the realization that the hardest thing to obtain from another human being is their genuine interest,”

Actors, businesses, bands, churches, youth groups and everyone else, are looking for what Kellie was looking for, genuine interest.

She rewarded a table full of genuinely interested people talking about her role in The Last Jedi by going over and introducing herself.  A simple and kind gesture, but it meant the world to that table of people.

As human beings, we can come to believe we deserve genuine interest, but Kellie was humble and grateful for such attention. We should all be so grateful that anyone is talking about us, buying our stuff, or recommending what we do to others. We should also have a plan to reward them when they do.

How will you reward people when they give you the genuine interest you’ve been looking for?
