REASONS WE LACK EXCELLENCE

REASONS WE LACK EXCELLENCE

 

  1. 1.      Failure to
    see excellence as spiritual and Godly

 

Isn’t excellence often viewed
as worldly?

 

Psalms 16: 3  As for the saints who are in the earth, They
are the majestic ones in whom is all
my delight.

 

Proverbs 12: 26  The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour……. but the way of the wicked seduceth
them.

 

 

  1. Confusing pride with excellence.   Don’t these
    two have similar manifestations?

 

Pride says:

“I am great”

“this is for me”

“I must prove myself”

“notice me”

“I will be tops”

“I am the best”

“I’ll show them how sharp I
am”

 

Excellence says:

“I am great because of Him”   Proverbs 3:6

“this will glorify God”            Matt.
5:16

“I will be my best to display
Him”  Eph. 6:5-8

“I will do my best as unto
the Lord” Col. 3:23,24

“My best requires more faith
that just getting by”

“God raises me up”     Ph.  3:13,14

“I need to walk worthy of the
great calling on my life”  Ephesians 4:1

 

Have you ever failed to
display excellence because you didn’t want to appear prideful?
