Aiming for True Greatness
The world measures success by four simple metrics: wealth, beauty, power and fame. You don’t have to read very far into the pages of the Bible to realize that, more often than not, God uses weak, broken, unknown and undesirable people to do His best work.
If we aim our children at the world’s view of success we are definitely aiming low because God has something much better in mind. Why just be successful when you can be Truly Great? True Greatness is a passionate love for God that demonstrates itself in an unquenchable love and concern for others. God has amazing plans for us and our kids that we often miss because we are lured into and focus on earthly success. Helping our kids reach their full spiritual potential means we as parents need to model four heart traits.
