According to Psychology today, it takes 7 seconds to make a first impression. That means you have 7 seconds before people judge the kind of person they think you are.
When roasting coffee, the purpose of cupping is to identify the taste of coffee in its entirety; to identify the flavors, boldness, acidity, sweetness and even origin. It is then labeled as such.
As Christians, are we taking those 7 seconds to show that Jesus is living in us? Can people get a good idea of who you are? Do you come off as kind, sweet, loving considerate, etc.? Or do people notice bitterness, negativity or anger?
Choose daily to make the attributes of Jesus evident in your life so that when someone meets you for the first time, you can fill their view of you with 7 (or more) seconds of Jesus.
