Significance over Success

10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:10 NIV)

The world does not like the weak. It wants the strong, the powerful, the beautiful, the elite. I have had the good fortune to rub shoulders with some great people in this world. When I think back the ones I remember who fit into the categories above were few. But I have met many humble and broken people who I found far more memorable. People perfected in their weakness.

Those who seek significance in their lives will always be more impressive than those who only seek success.
