The Character of Greatness
History is replete with the stories of individuals whose achievement and impact existed even after their generation. This shows that much more than wanting to be successful in one endeavor or the other ,there is an influence that makes our legacy remain even after we are gone its called greatness.
Greatness is God raising a man to a be a blessing beyond the limitation of time and space,thus enabling him to be an influence to generations and nations outside the restriction of the chronological and geographical confinement. — Col. Moyo Akin-ojo
Every well-meaning human wants to attain this height, however, there is something that is worthy of knowing in this quest , that every expression of greatness we know of is a product of a heart condition — service. A saying goes thus : if you are too big to serve, then you are too small to lead. This is so because for something to be considered as trans-generational in impact ,then it will be something that helps humanity and proffer solutions to their problem in one way or the other.
If your motive to be come great is to oppress others or show off, you will never become great , for greatness carries blessing humanity with it.
So my friend, your talents, gifts ,potential and skills are not in your custody for showing off and display rather it is to serve others.
Remember this always: great people are stewards not masters, if you must be great then you must be a servant.
Like I always tell you , to see you great is my utmost desire and it is to that end that I write to you always. I love you and I hope to see you soon.
…… instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves.For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves. ( Luke 22:26–27 NIV)
