What difference will it make if you and I don’t live great for Jesus Christ? Hear what Dr. King says about greatness: (Serve is the definition of Greatness ). The SO Factor begins now…let’s gain knowledge!
· "Be not afraid of greatness; some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them." William Shakespeare
· "The price of greatness is responsibility."Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill
· "What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us." Ralph Waldo Emerson
· "Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people." Hyman Rickover
· "Before you can inspire with emotion, you must be swamped with it yourself. Before you can move their tears, your own must flow. To convince them, you must yourself believe." Winston Churchill
· "He should sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lives a great street-sweeper who did his job well'" Martin Luther King Jr.
Everyone can serve and all can serve well. That’s where greatness begins to grow and multiple. The SO Factor is doing and living to SERVE Others and to give Glory to God in all things!
I Ask: Do you want to be great! It’s more than being about the benjamins…It’s more than being associated with the right people…and it’s more than wanting it more than someone else and trying to be first for the sake of being first. God’s grace is sufficient…the Drum Majors aren’t just seeking change for change sake, they seek to make a difference so that others may live new because they allowed God to use them. That’s what Dr. King did, now what about us?
Do you want to live on purpose? It starts with giving it away… what is it? What difference does having it make? Until “SO” is our purpose, it never matters. However, when SO becomes the focus and serving others life is our chosen way of life, what was a weakness becomes the greatest strength and reason to live each day.
SO What – Serve Others and the what that God has for each of us will be revealed in a heart of Joy! Do something great and the SO will come alive! So we are Free at last to be all who God is calling us to be, so we are called to serve, now live as God is calling us into greatness…(close with the We Shall Overcome)
