Greatness 1

If any of us are ever truly great, it will be for consistency, selflessness, and a generous spirit. (Gloria Gaither, gospel songwriter)

What makes a person great? In our 21st century lifestyle, you might think it’s achievement in sports, academia, or the dramatic arts. Newspaper headlines and TV alerts announce the latest exploits of the well-known stars among us. But there is a new start every season, and someone who has surpassed previous records. Gaither notes what is longer-lasting and beneficial.

Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold (Proverbs 22:1).
