Michael Jordan: A Man of Excellence

Congratulations to Michael Jordan- a man of true excellence, a living testament to hard work and practice and a man who has had to overcome a plethora of adversities- for receiving a Presidential Medal of Freedom today.

Arguably the best player to ever step foot on the courts of the NBA, Jordan was the most spectacular, prolific and competitive athlete to play any sport.  Even if you were not a fan of the Chicago Bulls, you had to respect the greatest basketball player of all time as he dazzled all with his signature moves and dunks, multiple championships and Olympic accomplishments.

As President Obama jokingly stated, Jordan is more than "just a logo or an Internet meme...he is the symbol of excellence."  And, President Obama was correct...when one thinks about that one person in a niche or field that excels all others, the individual is typically called the "Michael Jordan of..."

Jordan is inspirational from so many perspectives, but I appreciate the fact that he worked incredibly hard to be the best player that he could possibly be...beyond his natural abilities.  

Similarly, God anoints His children to accomplish specific purposes and to complete specific tasks.  Still, like Jordan, it is imperative that we perfect that which concerns Him for His glory. 

Let us press forward with a spirit of excellence and strive for our eternal prize of residence with our Redeemer in Heaven.  How beautiful and excellent it will be to hear those humbling words from our Savior:  "Well done, my good and faithful servant."

 

Bad Habits that Christians Should Drop

By the grace of God, an article found me today.  This article, entitled 6 Bad Habits Christians Should Drop, appeared in the online version of Relevant Magazine.  

Link: http://www.relevantmagazine.com/god/6-bad-habits-christians-should-drop

The article is very consise and brutally honest.  I though that the writer did a very good job of addressing what he muses are the six most significant habits that Christians need to drop.

I think that are other habits that Kingdom citizens need to kick to the curb such as being too worldly, spending too much time on social media, praying only on an as-needed basis, replacing Bible study time with non-productive fillers and going to church on an as-needed basis.

But, overall a great article.
