I ruined steak for my brother when I split a Ruth’s Chris gift card with him. He took one bite of a Ruth’s Chris steak, and he was done, forever. Literally slayed in the seat. Agog with wonder that a steak, a steak, could taste that good.
“Humility is the foundation of excellence.” — Coach Sean Quinlan
Excellence rarely develops in the absence of humility. Without a spirit of humility, other traits like perfectionism and showmanship emerge. Neither have anything to do with excellence; rather, they demonstrate pride and arrogance.
Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord [always doing your best and doing more than is needed], being continually aware that your labor [even to the point of exhaustion] in the Lord is not futile nor wasted [it is never without purpose]. — 1 Corinthians 15:58, The Amplified Bible
