I set my alarm on my phone to wake up and Siri set it for me; when I thanked “her”, she said, “I aspire not to greatness but to usefulness.”
I wish every Christian were that way. What do you aspire to–greatness or usefulness? Our motives reveal the deepest truth about us. Which would you rather have–greatness or usefulness?
May God grant us true grace in our hearts to never care if we are known by anyone outside our little circle, having instead this motive and desire, “Lord, I want to fully be used by You to the full extent that will glorify Your name.” Not wanting greatness, but fully wanting usefulness.
