Greatness is not wealth, fame, prestige, or power, but honesty, compassion, humility, and character. Greatness is not striving to be at the peak of the hierarchy, but faithfulness to truth and love.
Greatness breaks the bondage of self-focus, soars in serving others, and lives out the principle of “liberty & justice for all.” Greatness is humble obedience to the living God, not forceful self-assertion.
Here is Jesus’ definition of greatness: “The greatest among you will be your servant.” –Matthew 23:11. When asked who is the greatest, Jesus pointed to a little child and said: “Whoever takes the lowly position of this child…”
It takes radical courage, but you can do it. Dare to be great! Great people make a great nation.
