Why Greatness?

November 30, 2010

Why do I want to be great in some way? Is it a God given desire or a self-centered one? I think contentment is the core issue.

I am not content with who I am. I would like to be better at a lot of things, but especially great at one thing. In studying Paul Gilbert’s guitar techniques or reading about Steve Jobs marketing prowess that unlike them, I have come to realize I’ve accomplished nothing great, at least what I would consider great.

I suppose everyone can’t be great. But I still desire to be the best in something. Is it because I thought I was never good enough as a child? I am still trying to figure this out.

I need to find a biblical answer to this.
