A great man is always willing to be little. (Ralph Waldo Emerson, 19th century essayist)
We seem to equate public accomplishment or presence with greatness. If your picture is in the paper or on TV often, it must be because of something great you’ve accomplished. But the person who makes the greatest achievements may be the one who is behind the scenes—the man or woman who doesn’t seek fame but wants to help others be successful.
If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. (James 3:13)
