Reaching For Greatness

Helen Keller once said the following:

"I long to accomplish great and noble tasks, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker."

As this year’s high school seniors prepare to graduate, each of them will hear about the many different ways to reach for greatness in life. But God puts greatness within the reach of each and every person by attributing it to small acts of faithfulness. If you truly reach for greatness, it can always be found in “accomplishing humble tasks as though they were great and noble.”

Luke 16:10

Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.

I love you all,
