glamour is not greatness
I found this in some notes as I was studying. It really blessed me and touched me. We strive to be the great one but it is usually the regular one that makes the difference. We need to accept who God made us and do the work He called us to do in quietness and humility.
''Let it never be forgotten that glamour is not greatness; applause is not fame; prominence is not eminence. The man of the hour is not apt to be the man of the ages. A stone may sparkle, but that does not make it a diamond; people may have money, but that does not make them a success. It is what the unimportant people do that really counts and determines the course of history. The greatest forces in the universe are never spectacular. Summer showers are more effective than hurricanes, but they get no publicity. The world would soon die but for the fidelity, loyalty, and consecration of those whose names are unhonored and unsung.''
