A Kingdom Leader pushes himself to a high level of excellence. He works to make a distinctive difference for our Lord by his effort and success. He is not just a high achiever but seeks to maximize each opportunity placed in front of him. He is not content to do things on an acceptable level but raises his personal bar of achievement.
When was the last time you did your job on a high level of excellence? Are you aware of what others consider as an outstanding performance? Are you just content to do the basics of your job and go home? Do you go the second mile when asked? Do you work as if the Lord is watching you effort. Would He consider your work, attitude and effort as a reflection of high quality?
Daniel 6:3 (NIV)
3 Now Daniel so distinguished himself among the administrators and the satraps by his exceptional qualities that the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom.
Even non-believers can see a heart, attitude and effort that is above the norm. Raise the bar and don’t work harder. . .work smarter.
