“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love…”

This quote from Martin Luther King reminds us of what greatness really is … echoing the words of Jesus …

“Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant.” (Mark 10:43)

Today, and every day, each and every one of us has the capacity for greatness, for one simple reason: Each and every one of us has the capacity to serve.

Success may be ever elusive, but greatness never is. It’s as simple as doing something for someone other than yourself as often as you can: your family, your co-workers, customers, and clients, and even those you may never personally know — greatness lies in your willingness to serve.
