A genuine, authentic love of excellence isn’t rooted in greed or narcissism or materialism — that’s dualism talking. It’s rooted in love , for God and others. A desire to serve God and his world well.
Dorothy Sayers, this spunky, rebellious British writer from half a century ago, said that the best way to serve others with our work is to “serve the work.”
Do one thing. And do one thing well . And do that one thing well as an act of service and love for the world and to the glory of God.
If you’re really good at whatever it is you do, you don’t need to tell the rest of us. We’ll know. Beautiful things don’t ask for attention.
- Summary: excellence is enough to serve others
