If you want to achieve excellence, you can get there today.
As of this second, quit doing less-than-excellent work.
~Thomas J Watson~
Excellence is a choice. It was with great excellence and love that God created the heavens above and the earth below. It was with great excellence that He took the time to create us in His own image (Gen 1:27). It was with great love and excellence that God sent His only Son to die so that we might live. So why at times do we do less than excellent work? Why do we sometimes only give our best when it will benefit us?
We serve a Great God of great Excellence. Let’s renew our commitment today to give Him excellence in return as our worship to Him.
Ways to live in Excellence:
- START IT – The only way to live a life of excellence is to just start. Start in your mind, words, actions, and habits. There’s no special formula or pill. Excellence starts with you digging deep and living it out.
- SPEAK IT – Champions don’t walk around speaking negativity and defeat. They speak victory and positivity.
- WORK IT – Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people (Col 3:23)
- To ‘work it’ means being diligent, faithful, and stepping out of our comfort zones. Excellence isn’t always the most comfortable, but it is always the most honorable.
You have what it takes! Be the best. Shake off a less-than or status-quo mindset and live a life of excellence for the Lord.
