Good Morning, Sunshine!
Those of us who have dined at a Chick-fil-A restaurant know that their
employees are trained to respond with "My pleasure" when thanked for a
service. Recently, one Chick-fil-A employee was recognized for taking his
customer service to a higher level.
Good Morning America recently launched a series called, "Good Morning,
Sunshine" in which they recognize some people who "put a little sunshine
into our lives." The first segment highlighted a young man name Jeremiah
Murrill, a drive-through worker at a Chick-fil-A in Wilmington, North
A loyal customer, Toya Liles, videoed Murrill as he engagingly and
enthusiastically took her order in the drive-through line. She posted the
video online and it went viral. "The world needs more people like
Jeremiah," Liles told Fox News. "His positive attitude and his exhilarating
spirit can brighten anyone's day."
Why is Murrill so cheerful and engaging?
Murrill explains that his interaction with one customer in the past has
changed the way he interacts with everyone. The customer was troubled, even
suicidal, when she met Murrill in the drive-through line. "This never
happened to me before, and I had no idea, like, how to respond, but I stayed
calm and I was like, 'You know what, let me just talk to her and make sure
this doesn't happen,'" he told Good Morning America. Murrill was able to
help the young lady.
Since then, he's been trying to bring a little sunshine into the life of
everyone that he meets. *
May I share something with YOU that can change your whole disposition, your
outlook on life, and even positively affect the way you treat other people?
Here it is: Jesus loves YOU so much that He gave His life for you so that
you can have forgiveness of sins and receive the gift of eternal life (John
3:16; Ephesians 1:7).
He didn't do this for you and me because we deserve it, but because we
desperately needed it. In our sins, we are lost and doomed to destruction
(Matthew 7:13-14). But Jesus loves us so much that He gave His life for us
so that we might have the abundant life now (John 10:10) and eternal life to
come (Romans 6:23).
God will save and give eternal life to those who place their faith and trust
in Jesus (Acts 16:30-31), turn from their sins in repentance (Acts
17:30-31), confess Jesus before men (Romans 10:9-10), and are baptized
(immersed) into Christ for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38). Then, as we
walk in the light of His Word, the blood of Jesus continues to cleanse us
from all sin (1 John 1:7-9).
Knowing "I am loved, I am saved, and I'm on my way to heaven," changes
everything - our outlook, our "in-look (the way we view ourselves)," and
even the way we treat other people. We understand that God loves other
people, too, and wants them to go to heaven (1 Timothy 2:4).
What Jesus has done for us is Good News (the Gospel). In fact, it's the
greatest, life-changing news of all. YOU can know that Good News in your
life if you'll only accept it on His terms.
