Some of the most influential people today are people that never tried to get influence. The most admired people, the people that shape global opinion, are people that didn’t try to do that. Mother Teresa is a perfect example of that. The people that the world admires the most, are people that have no personal ambition – they just don’t care about themselves. So, this is important for us leaders to understand. We need to be very clear. We just love people, we just do what’s good, we just please our God, we humble ourselves under the hand of our Mighty God, and he exalts us at the proper time. It’s always going lower. Whenever there’s a problem the answer is going lower.
The way you treat your wife or children or parents or siblings may influence generations to come. What legacy do you want to leave your posterity? One of harshness, vengeance, anger, fear, or isolation? Or one of love, humility, forgiveness, compassion, spiritual growth, and unity?
