Greatness in God’s Sight
The greatest men are but fractions of men. No one is endowed with all gifts. Every one has his own particular excellence or ability. No two have precisely the same gifts, and no two are called to fill precisely the same place in life. The lowliest and the humblest in endowments is just as important in his place as the most brilliantly gifted. The great life in God’s sight is not the conspicuous one, but the life that fills the place which it was made to fill, and does the work which it was made to do. God asks not great things; he asks only simple faithfulness, the quiet doing of what he allots.
