Significance vs. Greatness

"Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great. You can be that generation."
-Nelson Mandela

I saw this quote on Twitter yesterday and it made me think of the generation that exists in Senior High right now. There is something of a crossroads between the desire to impact this country, this world for some kind of common good. Some are united under the banner of Jesus Christ, while others are just ready to make a difference in the world, maybe not even realizing that they are the hands and feet of Jesus at times.

So, do you believe that you can be a part of that generation? Do think that you can play a role int hat kind of a generation?

I'm confident in every single person that reads this blog and their ability to play a role. I'm not sure what those roles are in every case, but everyone has a role. How do you support something significant? How do you build them up and prepare, support and love on a group that wants to be better, that wants to make a difference? I think we do it by asking this question:

Why do I need to be significant? 

Perhaps our own personal insignificance can benefit God's significance. His Glory.
