A Legacy That Matters

Through the Looking Glass

In our society today, there is a relentless striving for greatness. We see it in sports, politics, entertainment, business, and even the church — people want to be known for something greater than themselves. Yet throughout history, greatness has always manifested itself in unlikely suspects – simple people who stumbled into greatness.

The guitar player who revolutionized the recording industry… Les Paul.

The vegetable salesman who changed the way we see the world… Thomas Edison

The simple, self-educated prairie lawyer who united a war-torn country… Abraham Lincoln

The apostle Paul described Jesus as one who “made himself of no reputation, but took the form of a servant”. The Creator of the universe, God Almighty, came to this earth to serve the very race of people that broke His heart in the garden.

Now that is an example we would all do well to follow.

The true life of greatness is born from an attitude of service — from being a great servant.
