It’s not uncommon to desire and strive for greatness.

One of the Battle Ready podcast conversations discussed how we often fail to recognize greatness and scoff at people who have accomplished things we can’t even dream of. We can be so judgy and noncelebratory with other’s achievements. Why not recognize greatness? Why not strive for true greatness? What is true greatness?
“We should never confuse fame with greatness. The former is about what you do for yourself; the latter is about what you do for others,” Erwin McManus wrote in his book Wide Awake.
True greatness in life is about what we do for others. If we are a part of Jesus’ revolution of love on the move here on earth, then people will be our greatest priority and serving them will be our greatest joy and accomplishment.
