31 Aug If it’s worth doing, do it well!
One of the most important decisions you will make today is between mediocrity and excellence. The truth is – it’s a decision we make every day of our lives, multiple times each day. We choose it with what we watch, what we say, what we read, and ultimately what we spend our time doing.
The problem is mediocrity has become acceptable and once we see someone “get by” with mediocrity, we are often tempted to do the same. This is where those who live for Jesus and are committed to leading, separate themselves. Our level of excellence isn’t based on what someone else has said is acceptable and our level of excellence isn’t based on what someone else has said is good enough.
In the Gospel of Mark, chapter 7, it is said of Jesus that He did everything well and as a result, the people where overwhelmed with amazement. A spirit of excellence draws people to Jesus, a spirit of excellence is constantly improving and discovering ways to do things well.
This is a must for leaders, but really it’s a must for all who love Jesus – in our families, at work, in the community, and of course at our local church. This week take your life and those you influence to another level by truly doing everything well; live with a spirit of excellence.
