To Be Remarkable, Be the Best, Really

Here's snippet #6 of my article 7 Ways to be Remarkable from the January 2008 issue of Pentecostal Messenger:

6. Be the Best, Really

The best of anything is remarkable. People talk about the best - whether it be the best bargains, restaurants, or sports teams. People also talk about excellence in churches, but congregations are silent if a church is average.

To be remarkable, find something you could be the best at, and then do it. Have the best preschool program in town, the best worship services in the city, or the best Vacation Bible School. You could love the best, teach the best, or work better than anyone to improve your city. The key is to find an area where you could be remarkable, and then work on that area.

Note that you cannot simply say you're the best, but you must be so. As Margaret Thatcher once said, "If you have to tell someone you are, you aren't."

Note: If you don't already receive Pentecostal Messenger and you'd like to, the Pentecostal Church of God is offering free subscriptions for the remaining 2008 issues. For details, go to
