Our preacher actually inspired this blog post.
He spoke this morning about people going around saying they are the best.
"I am the best church member, the best Christian, etc."
Well, you know, some people are like that.
And then you have the people who want to be the best church member or the best Christian.
There's nothing wrong with that. Everyone should strive to be their best.
But no matter what you do or what you strive to do, you should put your whole heart into it.
Even though we want to be, we may not ever be the best children's writer or best novelist.
But whatever you want to do or be, just put your whole heart into it and do your best. Then you won't ever have any regrets or wonder if you could have written the next best seller.
That is all you can ask of yourself. And if after you do that, you are the best children's writer or the best novelist. . . then great!
Remember the story about the ant and the rubber tree plant.
Oops! There goes another rubber tree plant.
