A quote from Martin Luther King to remind us what greatness really is.
“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…”
His words echo the words of Christ…
“Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant.” (Mark 10:43)
Today, and every day, we each have the capacity for greatness, for one simple reason: We each have 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 exists in your willingness to serve.
