Never Too Small To Be Part Of Greatness [Monday May 8, 2017]
Scripture: For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. 1 Corinthians 3:9.
Thought For The Day: It is not how great you are as a person but the greatness you contribute to a system that matters.
It has been established that greatness is a function of inter-connected sequence and system of events. Neglecting a little contribution to a great system, no matter how minute it might be, could truncate the holistic functionality of the system.
Sometime ago, I heard a funny folktale: An elephant suddenly found that a rabbit was sitting on its back. While the elephant was moving across a wooden bridge with the rabbit on its back, the bridge shook. The rabbit whispered to the elephant: ‘Did you notice that we just shook the bridge?’
A person may not be an ‘engine’ in an organisation but he may be playing a vital role in the motion of that organization. Similarly, one inactive wire can stop the motion of a car. So, never you say that you will not be serious with your job because you are not the CEO of your organization. Even if you are not the ‘Engine’, you could be the ‘Kick starter’ without which the vehicle’s ignition cannot be turned on.
It is not how great you are as a person but the greatness you contribute to a system that matters. And by so doing, you effectively represent God’s Kingdom to your world like Daniel.
Beloved, ensure that you participate in making something great and you will be part of that greatness.
Remember this: It is not how great you are as a person but the greatness you contribute to a system that matters.
