What Does It Mean to Be Great at Something?

So what does it mean to be great at something?  And how do we do it?

To start, we have to follow Jesus and the new concept of greatness that He introduced.  Jesus said,

Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave—  just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

True greatness starts with being a servant to others.  We don’t live by the world’s standards but Jesus’ standards.

In order to get great at something it seems that God intends for us to build upon the foundation of skills and wisdom that He has given us.
