Greatness has more to do with impact than fame. Fame is like a flame. when the winds blow, it dies out.
There are a lot of people doing great things. Yes! But I want you to understand that nothing is great unless a life is changed.
John Wesley was one who understood the concept greatness as service to humanity. On an average, he preached three sermons a day for fifty-four years, preaching more than forty-four thousand times altogether. To do this, he traveled on horseback and carriage more than two hundred thousand miles, or about five thousand miles a year. He was greatly devoted to ministry .
During a later period in his life, he was responsible for all the cities in England. To get his work done, he rose at four ,every morning and worked solidly until ten at night, allowing brief periods for meals.
At age eighty-three he was upset to discover that he could not write more than fifteen hours a day without hurting his eyes. At age eighty-six he was ashamed to admit that he could not preach more than twice a day and he was angry that he would sleep until 5:00 a.m.
This depicts the truth that you must serve your gifts and talent to the world.
In the process of service, focus on using it as a tool to inspire someone to greatness or raise great leaders. If your gift can change a person’s life then it was worth living. Give out your best because you have limited time in life.
You may not notice who is watching now but time will tell.
If u have a life to live, make an impact and, make it count!
