Excellence

I had the pleasure of throwing my mother a surprise 70th birthday yesterday. One word that kept coming up was excellence. My mother has always set a standard of excellence in both my life as well as those around us. She expects the best from herself and everyone around her. In grade school, “C’s” were unacceptable. She stressed that I was not average, and average was not God’s standard. When I started dating, she insisted that I pray and seek God’s best for my life. Good was nice. Better is okay, but God’s best was undeniable. That’s excellence. Excellence is God’s standard. It’s God’s best. It’s more than you think or ask. It’s abundance. Be excellent. Live in excellence.

Knowledge

Knowledge is defined by facts or skilled gained through experience or education. Life has a way of educating us in ways the classroom never could achieve. Education is valuable when it is valued by the individual. Most of us hated waking up and going to school. It was simply a check on the to do list. College was the lesser of two evils for me, but grad school was a deliberate decision. I don't think I valued my education until I made the choice to go back to school. School isn't the only avenue of learning. What new skills have you learned? What do you want to add to your toolkit? What knowledge do you have yet to gain? We live in an era when knowledge is at our fingertips. We can google anything. Ask alexa. We are fresh out of excuses to be ignorant. 

"To attain knowledge, add things everyday. To attain wisdom, remove things every day.” -Lao Tzu
