Distinction or Extinction

“Excellence is distinction. Mediocrity is extinction. Mediocrity is content with its condition and accomplishments. It settles for good when better is available. But excellence betters its best. It rises ‘higher than the highest.’ Excellence is a journey, never a destination. This journey begins when we “count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus [our] Lord” (Philippians 3:8). Jesus is the Model of excellence. Pleasing Him is to pursue excellence in all our works, personal lives & relationships, and in our exercise of power. This is distinction. Anything less is a denial of faith—hence, extinction. Choose to be distinct, not extinct.”—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
