What do you think of when you think of distinction? Something well done, well thought out, and well prepared?
When I think of excellence, I think of something much more than average – someone who goes above and beyond what is needed to ensure the task is correctly and adequately completed. I think of someone working ‘as to the Lord.’
Knowing that God is watching them and whatever they do, they do it as to the Lord. I try to do all things with a spirit of excellence. When I have to speak, I prepare months ahead and rehearse my speech many times to make sure that I do the best job that I can do. Of course, I pray and ask God’s blessing upon whatever I do. I’m talking about things that earthlings can do to make sure all tasks are excellent. I make it a habit to treat people the way I want to be treated and do things for others the way I want them done for me – in good taste and with excellence.
I thank God for giving me a spirit of excellence and that I do all things decently and orderly.
