Greatness

Do you want to be great? Sounds like the Bible has the perfect formula for you to follow.

Serve.

That’s it. Just serve. If you serve others, you will become great. Was just watching the Christmas Carol last night with Patrick Stewart. The Scrooge at the beginning was a wealthy man, with house and rooms to spare. He had more money than he needed and could afford anything he wanted. No one liked him.

By the end the story, he is buying gifts, spending time with others, offering to help where needed, and giving raises to his employee. The narration at the end said everyone loved him, and few were greater than he. Moral of the story? If you want to be great and loved, give. Hmmm.

Some men are great, and others have greatness thrust upon them. But few can actually be good people who are great. The “public servants” in Washington may be great, but they’re not that great. True greatness comes with humble and genuine service. In what ways can you serve today?

God bless!
