Excellence 2

Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence. (Vince Lombardi, late professional football coach)

It’s rare that anyone achieves perfection in any endeavor. Nadia Comaneci was awarded a perfect score of 10 in Olympics gymnastics in 1976. Others have tried hard to reach such a standard and come close, but “no cigar,” as they say. Lombardi, however, emphasizes the value of that hard work. We should all work hard to be excellent in every facet of life.

Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge. (2 Peter 1:5)
