True Greatness

My dear friend Andrea posted this site on her blog.
It was so wonderful to hear this, because this is one my heart's desires for my children. To be a servant for the Lord by serving others.

I want to raise my children for true greatness.
4 qualities of True Greatness:
  • Humility - Psalm 131:1 (Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.)
  • Gratefullness - 1 Chronicles 29:13 (Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.)
  • Generosity - Psalms 112:5 (A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.)
  • Servant's Heart - Mark 10:45 (For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many

I want my kids to be humble, thankful, care about others more than their own self and to want to help others.

Lord, help me to be these things so that I can lead by example to my children.
