If you want to be great, you must sacrifice your comfort. (Tim Kight, leadership entrepreneur)

Most people would probably like to be recognized for some achievement. To reach any measure of success, however, you may soon come to realize the truth of Kight’s observation. We are often challenged to move out of our “comfort zone,” that cozy place that doesn’t demand much of us. But remember that the price of greatness will  certainly demand some personal cost.

I will not take what is yours and give it to the Lord. I will not present burnt offerings that have cost me nothing! (1 Chronicles 21:24)

But don’t begin until you count the cost (Luke 14:28).
