Daily Mug Shot

Today's mug shot is Toby Mac giving the glory to the Lord in the midst of affirmation from others. As Moon Monkey becomes a brand that others recognize in the artist, speaker, teacher, leader realm...I pray I don't chase the affirmation. I know the Lord has amazing days ahead for Moon Monkey Coffee Company as we seek to give him the glory! Coffee is "just" yes," just" the tool of connection...what @tonysteward coined "brand evangilism" this weekend! Moon Monkey Coffee - excellent brand evangelism — Tony Steward:. Blog
Love that phrase & he is right's about proactive connection. Or what Nick from Newspring calls "one anothering" wanna know more about Newspring So this weekend through it all an Aspen Open House, a cupping,... followed by some reflection this it is:

the marriage of these two pharses...Moon Monkey's brand strategy is:
Brand Evangelism by one-anothering online & off. Perfect! thanks Nick & Tony!

The above picture is the cry of my heart...this morning...after I read a brief tweet from @perrynoble it caught the attention of my mentor

Tweet posted below:
@givelovecoffee Note 2 self: Are you chasing affirmation? it may appear as an opportunity. check origin...may just b a distraction to keep U from HIS plan.
so as I take my eyes off myself & Moon Monkey Coffee Company Here's a selection of passages taken from the message:
The Way He wants you to live: 1 Thes 5:11-28
12-13And now, friends, we ask you to honor those leaders who work so hard for you, who have been given the responsibility of urging and guiding you along in your obedience. Overwhelm them with appreciation and love!
13-15Get along among yourselves, each of you doing your part. Our counsel is that you warn the freeloaders to get a move on. Gently encourage the stragglers, and reach out for the exhausted, pulling them to their feet. Be patient with each person, attentive to individual needs. And be careful that when you get on each other's nerves you don't snap at each other. Look for the best in each other, and always do your best to bring it out.
16-18Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.
19-22Don't suppress the Spirit, and don't stifle those who have a word from the Master. On the other hand, don't be gullible. Check out everything, and keep only what's good. Throw out anything tainted with evil.
23-24May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he'll do it!
25-27Friends, keep up your prayers for us. Greet all the followers of Jesus there with a holy embrace. And make sure this letter gets read to all the brothers and sisters. Don't leave anyone out.
28The amazing grace of Jesus Christ be with you!
