SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR SEPTEMBER 16, 2022 (UNDERSTANDING EXCELLENCE)
TOPIC: UNDERSTANDING EXCELLENCE
SCRIPTURE: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Matthew 5:14.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To exist in distinction or excellence means to live an outstanding life.
Defining excellence or distinction is necessary because what is not defined cannot be found; what is not defined cannot be rectified; and what is not defined cannot be refined.
Mentality determines reality because what is not real in your mind cannot be real in your life. This means, to exist in excellence or distinction, there is a need to know what excellence or distinction is all about.
The question then is: what is excellence?
1. It means to excel is to stand out in life.
To exist in distinction or excellence means to live an outstanding life. When a person exists in distinction or excellence, he stands out in life. A call unto excellence is a call unto an outstanding life. To exist in distinction or excellence is to live an outstandingly enviable life.
2. It means existence as a generational illumination.
To exist in distinction or excellence means to exist as a generational illumination or revelation. When you exist in distinction or excellence, there is “something” about you that lightens your world. Once you step into a place where there is darkness and depression, light appears because you are the light of the world (Matthew 5:14); you are a generational illumination or a generational revelation. To exist in excellence or distinction is to exist as the light that gives hope to people, hope to your world.
Remember this: To exist in distinction or excellence means to live an outstanding life.
