AWAY WITH MEDIOCRITY

By: Adrienne Dobson

  Even at a young age, it was always instilled in me to never applaud mediocrity.  Average is never good enough when you can always do better.  Unfortunately, as you grow up your peers can become your guiding influence and I began coming to grips with my little imperfections.  I wasnít tall enough to be a post-player for the Lady Vols, and I wasnít thin enough to be a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader, but those little things were out of my control.  But because of life and itís situations we often adapt and accept everything that comes our way.  We get ĎCís in school and automatically we say itís for completion or we get a ďDĒ and itís for diploma.  We continue to be accepting of this mediocrity and then we wonder why we canít excel in all areas of life.  Our acceptance of mediocrity makes any effort we put into our spiritual and natural living seem acceptable.  What happened to the times when we didnít take anything less than average.  I urge you, brothers and sisters in Christ, let us stop accepting average and truly practice out 1 Corinthians 10:31 and do all things to give God the glory.
