Women of Excellence

Photobucket

Sunday night was the beginning of a Bible study I'm hosting. We have 9 ladies studying, Becoming a Woman of Excellence by Cynthia Heald.

I'm excited about this study because this is something I strive for. For the record, excellence does not mean perfection. I am far from perfect! Just ask my husband and children. However, I do strive to do my best in all I do. Sometimes I succeed and often I fail. Yet when I fail, I get up and brush myself off and try again.

I think this is something that all of us who are followers of Christ should be doing. However, the Christian community is often known for their lack of quality and excellence in what they do. When people look at us they should be able to say there is someone who takes pride in what they do. It doesn't matter if you are a garbage man, a pastor, a homemaker, or the President, we should do our best.

Why? Because as I Corinthians 10:31 says, "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." Everything we do is for the Lord, even scrubbing a floor. Let's strive to be women of excellence and in doing so we will glorify the Lord!
