Signs of the Times

Rev. Alvin D. Johnson in a Share-the-News Letter of the City Park Baptist Church Denver, Colorado

Excellence is a wonderful ideal and is something an individual enters into covenant with himself to accomplish. When this pledge is made to himself, it matters not how the winds are blowing, whether there is a great wave of acceptance or whether he has to go his lonely way. Excellence in his thinking is an offering he makes to God. Excellence in his working, his relationships with others he makes as offerings of gratitude.

The person who has excellence as his ideal is not in competition with others nor attempting to best them. He is working in harmony with the task, with God, with his best talents to get the most done in the least time and in the most orderly and significant fashion.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
