Think outside yourself
Being a part of a special group is so fun and makes you feel so privileged! It's true that because you have worked hard and dedicated your heart and soul to becoming a Godllywood Girl, you now have earned the right to actually be one. But one danger comes with that. It's when you begin to think that you are better than others, and begin to act that way. When you exclude others, when you show favoritism, when you stop being kind and thoughtful, you lose the spirit of Godllywood and that's exactly what we DON'T want!
The Spirit of God is constantly giving, caring and helping. When we are following His Spirit, we need to be doing the same thing. You now have new friends in your group. You also have new girls you can meet every week in church, even those who aren't a part of Godllywood. God is looking at you to see if you are following His Spirit and showing kindness, care and friendliness to everyone.
To be a Godllywood Girl, there is no room for selfishness or rudeness. That is in the No-No's list! The moment you notice that you are acting that way, pray immediately, ask God to forgive you and then do exactly the opposite of that behavior. Even when it's hard to be nice to someone you are jealous of or feel uncomfortable with, you are letting God bless you more. What you reap you sow. What you do comes back to you!
Instead of just thinking of what you want, being friendly to those who you like and being kind only to those who are kind to you, start to give your kindness to others - think outside yourself! Remember, the world doesn't revolve around you!
