Greatness 2

The first test of a truly great man is in his humility. (John Ruskin, 19th century English writer)

Winners of championship teams are often interviewed and asked what was most important to them in their victory. Some of them talk about the years of training, the months of tiring practice, the life-long goal of achievement. The most memorable, probably, are those who humbly turn attention to their families, coaches, and teammates who have made their dreams possible.

Pride ends in humiliation, while humility brings honor . . . For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted. (Proverbs 29:23; Luke 14:11)
