They were completely amazed and said again and again, "Everything he does is wonderful. He even makes the deaf to hear and gives speech to those who cannot speak."
Mark 7:37

   Leaders pursue excellence. They lead their organizations, their families, their businesses, and, in fact, their very lives striving for their best.

Jesus was committed to excellence. God gave his very best—his Son. And, as the New Testament writer Mark reminds us, God’s Son gave his very best—his life. He made the best wine (see Matthew 14:13-21), and the limbs he restored were perfect (see Mark 3:1-5). His followers should do no less. Less than our best is inadequate, considering the fact that God has given us his very best.

Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.” Whatever our role, our position, our organization, or our lot in life, we should strive for the best. The measure of our success should not be attached to our particular career or what we earn but on our character and what we give.

Excellence does not mean being the best but being your best, understanding that variation makes all the difference in the world. Excellence is being better than you were yesterday. Excellence means matching your practice with your potential.

Some people have fame thrust upon them. Very few have excellence thrust upon them. Excellence is achieved. What will you do to have people say, like they said of Jesus, “Everything he does is wonderful“?

NLT

    • Thanks Rose, that was an excellent read!  In the past few weeks as I have explored this site and contributed in questions and comments, I have learned so much from the fab40 ladies.  I hope to return to work (school) with a clearer mind, better attitude, and excel in my job.  Being just adequate is not good enough, I have the potential to achieve excellence.

      Thanks for all your support!

      heart,
      Linda
