Who told you it was admirable to minimize your greatness so that those who choose to live a life of mediocrity can feel better about themselves when you are around? There is nothing honorable about devaluing your gifts to make others more comfortable in your presence. We were made in the image of an all present, all knowing, all powerful God and transposing to be anything other than that is just down right foolish! Who are we to dismiss the light of His perfection
to appease the darkness of our own insecurities. We were designed to be unique not normal. We were born to shine not settle. Each and everyone one of us were endowed with gifts that we have a moral, civic and fiduciary responsibility to share with the world. As we ourselves are liberated by allowing our light to shine through the gifts given to us, we unconsciously give others permission to let their light shine as well.
