The Light Daily Devotional – Becoming Outstanding
Focus: Becoming Outstanding
WORD FOR TODAY
Going the extra mile within the circumference of God’s will for you is the ultimate secret behind becoming outstanding in every facet of life. To be what others cannot be you must do what others cannot do under God’s grace!
“Do you think you deserve credit merely for loving those who love you? Even the sinners do that! And if you do good only to those who do good to you, is that so wonderful? Even sinners do that much! Luke 6:32-33 NLT
No man will give you credit for doing what is normal and expected of you. No man ignores excellence; a product of outstanding performance. Greatness begins with yielding yourself as a living sacrifice in the service of God and humanity.
David faced Goliath when others declined to do so. Jesus forgave and prayed for those who crucified Him. Joseph flees from fornication that other young men will call opportunity. Some abnormality to the canal mind associated with obeying God’s instruction is what distinguishes men.
A man cannot be termed an outstanding father or mother until children who are not his biological children see him and hold him in very high esteem as a father or mother. This is because it is normal that you won’t give your children stone in place of bread.
+ Who will give you credit for doing what everybody is doing?
Lord! Help me to be a living sacrifice in service to God and humanity in Jesus name. Amen.
Emphasis: You will only be outstanding if you sacrificially do something extraordinary!
