One Minute with God: Equal Opportunities
We all have been given equal opportunities to dream, to believe, and to labor at what our hearts cling to. To put into motion those things that are not, as though they were. Some of the greatest stories ever told have been lived by individuals who overcame all odds. A group of wandering nomads who weren’t handed anything, but simply had the determination to take baby steps into accomplishing their goals.
It isn’t always wealth and fame that makes these people so special. But, their moral character, their commitment, and their loyalty to fulfilling their purpose in life. Some of them were dads, other moms, and yet other postal workers. It didn’t matter their titles, but it did matter their efforts. Some of their names may have never reached the height of the executive latter. But, their legacies will live on in the hearts of those they served.
Success is not always what our society makes it out to be. You and I are considered a total success, in God’s eyes, if we leave this place better than what we found it. Everyone has an equal opportunity to do that.
1 Corinthians 1:27-29
27 But, God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things - and the things that are not - to nullify the things that are, 29so that no one may boast before him.
