Today’s Message is: “Better Than Day!” Why Not?

“Great leaders bring out the best in those they lead. They will make others better than they are because of their leadership and presence. In the end, leaders make sure the impact they made on others lasts long after they are gone. They’re not afraid to surround themselves with people better than them. Are you an exceptional leader that is committed to making others better than they are or better than you? That’s Leadership!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Better than should be an internal thing. One should always strive to be better than before in everything they do. The problem is too many of us look to others to tell us they are better than before/others rather than trusting our own feelings and experiences.

That is so true Jack... People need to look at themselves and decide to make the next day better than the one before... or become a better person than before. Have a great day and her's wishing all of your days ahead are better than the last my friend...

Consider Others Better Than Yourself - Philippians 2:3 Sue Chastain



By Mary Fairchild Updated on April 15, 2019

Today's Bible Verse: Philippians 2:3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. (NIV) Today's Inspiring Thought: Consider Others Better Than Yourself "The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good."
