EXCELLENCE
– Not pursued at the expense of others nor at the expense of disobeying rules.
– Always goes back to ones with values.

3 Questions to Ponder on:

1. Who are you?
2. What are you good at?
3. What are you here for?

Christian definition:
Pursuit of a worthy ideal which benefits others

Oxford:
Possession of good qualities to an unusual degree.

“Excellence cannot be defined by the ways of the world”

PART 2

WORTHY
– how do we decide what’s worthy or ideal?
– how do we decide who’s worthy or ideal?
– WHOm do all depend on?

Proverbs 9:10
(what is wisdom)

“It is one thing to show your child the way, and a harder thing to then stand out of the way.”
– Robert Brault

Romans 5:3
(in times of suffering)

ENVY is the art of counting other people’s blessings instead of your own.

Athletics:
– you compare your self with others
– if you need to, then you have to leave others to win

Spiritual:
– who you used to be, and who you ought to become
– you do not leave those who are in need.

A Loser is not one who runs last in the raise but one who just sits and never tries to do anything.
