The Fragrance of Excellence Pt 4

Pursuing Excellence

 

FOUR LIES PERPETUATED BY SOCIETY TODAY, EVEN WITHIN THE CHURCH

 

1. YOU ARE A VICTIM. THIS IS NOT YOUR FAULT, BUT SOMEONE ELSE’S.

 

  1. YOU WILL BE REWARDED FOR SIMPLY SHOWING UP.

 

  1. THE QUALITY OF YOUR WORK REALLY DOESN’T MATTER.

 

  1. YOUR PERSONAL INTEGRITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR FUTURE.

 

THE LIFE OF GOD THAT LIVES WITHIN US DEMANDS THAT WE BECOME BETTER TOMORROW THAN WE WERE TODAY

 

EXCELLENCE IS NO LESS THAN THE FULL EXPRESSION OF GOD THROUGH MAN …

 

2 Pet 1:3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.

 

EXCELLENCE IS THE CONTINUAL PURSUIT OF IMPROVEMENT

 

EXCELLENCE IS – “IS A FRAGRANCE”

 

  • STAYING ONE STEP AHEAD OF ORDINARY.
  • DOING A COMMON THING IN AN UNCOMMON WAY

 

  • GOING BEYOND THE STATUS QUO
  • BEING UNSATISFIED WITH JUST-GOOD-ENOUGH
  • DOING YOUR ABSOLUTE BEST IN EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE, GIVEN YOUR CAPACITY.

 

Col 3:23 Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men; 24 Knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. it is the Lord Christ whom you serve.  

 

TODAY’S EXCELLENCE IS TOMORROWS MEDIOCRITY

 

DEFINITIONS OF EXCELLENCE:

TO BE MEDIOCRE IS TO BE FRAIL, INADEQUATE, SECOND-CLASS, INFERIOR, SUBSTANDARD, UNSATISFACTORY, COMMONPLACE AND ORDINARY.

 

IT’S THE PLACE OF LEAST RESISTANCE AND REQUIRES THE LEAST EFFORT.

 

IT IS THE STATUS QUO

 

STATUS QUO IS ONLY ACCEPTABLE TO THE MEDIOCRE

 

WE ARE NEVER CALLED TO LIVE WITH AN ATTITUDE OF JUST GOOD ENOUGH
