If you want to be important—wonderful.
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 a new definition of greatness.
And this morning, the thing that I like about it:
by giving that definition of greatness,
that everybody 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 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.
And you can be that servant!
