The desire to be special and significant is cut deep in our souls, a primal fire waiting only to be set free. (Neil Cole, author)

Is Cole right? Do you have a burning desire to be noticed, to have a significant impact around you? Perhaps it’s to be a hall-of-fame athlete or a prize-winning Olympian. Or maybe it’s something less obvious but still a longed-for achievement. No doubt, it would be far better if our desire for significance would be less self-centered and more targeted to helping others.

Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. (1 Peter 4:11)
