Greatness

Nelson MandelaThe world is grieving the death of a great human being. “Mandela. One name. One man. One mission: Saving a nation from itself.” That’s how legendary boxer Muhammad Ali put it.

It took the death of a great human being to fill our newsfeeds with something other than the latest gossip about Kanye West or Miley Cyrus, reminding us that popularity and greatness are not the same thing.

Jesus once said, “Whoever wants to be great among you must be your servant.” That’s what Nelson Mandela was. That’s what true greatness is.

Nelson Mandela’s life and death are reminders that true greatness is within everyone’s reach, including yours and mine. We may not save a nation but we can change the world one life at a time through servanthood. God’s grace and forgiveness make it so.

Who can you serve today on the road to greatness?
