#MyEarlyMorningThoughts: Figuring Out What We Sacrifice For Greatness Helps Us To Determine What We Want To Be Great At....Read Now
"Greatness cost what it cost....... He said its not going on sale and its not gonna be marked down. There will be no discounts. There will be no buy-one get-one free......" (T. D. Jakes, very emotional sermon,16:50) (click quote)
We tend to feel that greatness is money and social status but, greatness is anything that we are willing to sacrifice an immeasurable amount of "something" for it in return. A great parent sacrifices their life, much of their freedom, often releases their dreams for a dream of rearing great children. A great christian sacrifices relationships, flesh, acceptance, and so much more. The same as parents who are great at being selfish sacrifice their legacy, reputation, and ultimately the good future of their children. Those who are greatly immoral sacrifice their integrity, relationships, and so on. Anything we choose to be great at will cost us something. Our moral compasses and character help us to determine what is worth sacrificing for a specific greatness.
"Being a great man ain't going on sale just because you didn't have a daddy"
Greatness will have no sympathy for your situation or circumstance. It has no respect of person. We will have to do the work just as those before and after us. Today, what are you being great at and what are you sacrificing?
When we put into place what we are sacrificing, it helps us to quickly decide what's worth being great.
