Becoming Great is Sticking To It

This post is classic Ben Arment blogging. Love the ideas/challenges Ben often shares on his blog.

In Church in the Making, I share a little formula as it relates to church planters:

Faith > Struggle = We Endure
Faith < struggle =" We">

For the past 15 years, I've carried one, single quote in my wallet: "The greatness of a man is not determined by what he achieves in life, but by what it takes to get him down."

Sometimes becoming great is simply resisting the urge to walk away.
