Bumbling towards greatness

Daniel had a vision where he saw that the world's kingdoms are often impressive, but they won't last. By contrast, God's kingdom lasts forever.

It's easy to get confused about what matters.

In the book The Silver Chair, Jill discovered, while struggling for greatness, that she was surrounded by it - and that the greatness she really wanted was God's, not her own.

A question to ponder: Are we working on things that will last? Are we trying to get to our greatness? Or God's?

God, thank you for letting us work on things that truly matter. We praise you. Amen.
