VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

If you want to be recognized, wonderful. If you want to be great, wonderful!

But recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.

That’s the new definition of greatness.

This morning, the thing I like about it, is that by giving it the definition of greatness
It means that everyone can be great, because everybody can serve.

You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.

You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve.

You don’t have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve.

You don’t have to know about Einstein’s Theory of Relativity to serve.

You don’t have to know the Second Theory of Thermodynamics in Physics to serve!

You only need a heart
full of grace.

(A) soul
generated by love.
