I simply can’t top this…
I’ve never made it into the Guinness Book of World Records. I’m not magna cum laude material. I’m no Jimmy Hendrix. I’m not physically fit. I’m losing my hair. I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed nor the brightest bulb of the bunch.
But the reality is as Calvin says it:
For to the extent that a man rests satisfied with himself, he impedes the beneficence of God.
Simply put – it is better to have little thoughts of myself, my looks, life and belongings and embrace the person of Jesus wholeheartedly than to disgrace the glory of God pretending I have something to boast in.
I pray that in this year of my life I may labor to be known as one who makes much of Jesus. O Jesus, help me!
