Being Authentically You

I love this story! It’s all about being ourselves and not faking it in our ministry. Enjoy!

 

A turkey was chatting with a bull. “I would like to be able to get to the top of that tree,” sighed the turkey, “but I haven’t got the energy.” “Well,” replied the bull, “why don’t you nibble on some of my droppings? They’re packed with nutrients.” The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. But he was promptly spotted by a hunter, who shot him down out of the tree. The moral of the story: BS might get you to the top, but it won’t keep you there.
