Radio Wednesday – True Greatness

CS Lewis said, “Aim at heaven, and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth, and you will get neither.” In this success-driven society in which we live, we value expertise over humility, enterprise over self- sacrifice, and rights over relationships. It only follows that much of what Americans focus on most as parents is raising successful kids. We have defined success as educated, high-achieving, money-making adults. But this philosophy stands in stark contrast to the biblical picture of greatness. Success is about wealth… beauty … power, and fame. There is nothing inherently wrong with any of these. But they are little more than cheap consolation prizes in the light of eternity. True greatness, one that is heaven focused, is a passionate love for God that demonstrates itself in an unquenchable love and concern for others. You can raise successful kids who don’t come anywhere close to true greatness. But the God of the Universe has something greater planned for those He has redeemed.
