Got Booked For David Letterman

➵ I thought I was going to be on the David Letterman show. My agency called me one day while I was taking a walk in New York to tell me the news. I didn't even go to a casting for this job which was very odd. Typically in modeling you have to go to a casting. They then select the one or ones they want after they "meet" you and have looked at your portfolio, which is the model’s resume filled with pictures of your work. I was shocked at this news, but definitely excited even though I didn't really watch his late night show, I knew millions of people did.

Once I got there I was led into a green room. After sitting for a few minutes, I started getting kind of nervous. Shortly thereafter, someone came and advised me what my scene would be about. As I listened to their words my heart sank. It was as if there was a big blown up blimp in my mind with the words "W-H-A-T???" going across it. I took a deep breath and said, "I will not be able to do this scene. I am sorry." I then got up and walked out. They had wanted to hire me to be one of Dick Chaney's "hoes”, all in the mindset of late night show raunchy humor. REALLY?! ”Fools make a mock at sin.” (Proverbs 14:9) Even though I definitely could have used the substantial pay and great exposure, I knew I had to walk out with a “No, thank you”.

This was the issue ....I understand that I would be acting and "playing a part," but I also knew my name, my face, my integrity, and my character are all attached to ME!! The Lord not only warns us to flee from sin, but to also not give the appearance of evil! (1 Thessalonians 5:22)
Genuineness is not just being a Christian on Sunday. If we are a committed Christian then we need to be one 24/7. This means at our jobs, with our friends, at school or while talking to our neighbors. He desires for us to be holy as He is holy. (1 Peter 1:15) How often do we "play a part" to fit in, be well liked, even for our jobs, which motivates us to walk in grey areas of compromise. Following Jesus centers totally around HIM and His Word. Choose to walk in agreement with His Word and receive blessings untold.➵  #soulchaser
