Can we count on you?
by Emmanuella Ellis
2/10/2017 / Christian Living
Men have lived lives
They have made names for themselves and set out pathways
They have made impacts on people, economies, and societies
Their time on earth they have not wasted
They have done things that others could only imagine
Great men have walked on the surface of the earth and achieved amazing goals
The greatest of them are those who fulfilled God’s purpose for their lives
They did not have the highest IQ
Not all of them were princes or princesses, beautiful or handsome
Not all had great rich lives, perfect health or strength
Not all had rosy lives, having all they wanted or needed
Some had no limbs or all their body parts functioning as expected
Not all had academic qualifications
Not all were famous people
Some of these men have stood on platforms before thousands of people
With voices heard across miles and by millions
While others were hardly noticed
These men might have deviated from the standards of the world and seem not to have belonged to the world
But they have changed lives with their actions, words and deeds
Maybe with a smile, a greeting, a helping hand
Others have laid down their lives, forgone the pleasures of the world, let go of certain dreams and aspirations
They did not fail their generation
They were different people, living different lives, at different locations, under different circumstances, belonging to different races or gender
Though different, they had common things
They were human and not perfect
None was qualified for all had weaknesses
They all knew God and put HIM first
They made a decision as to whom they would serve and live for
They pursued God and not the things of the world
They may not have been great in the eyes of the world but they were in the eyes of the one who really matters, God.
Greatness is defined by the lives you impact, the problems you solve and the need you address, however little in accordance with the will of God.
Do not fail your generation
