TRUE GREATNESS vs. Success ???

At the recommendation of a friend I picked up the book:  Raising Kids for True Greatness by Dr Tim Kimmel.

Just a few pages in and I was very encouraged and humbled.  It's not NEW information, but communicated in a way that is fresh, motivating and insightful.

Here are few excerpts :

 " The successful come, acheive and then leave. The truly great touch peoples' lives in such a way their impact lasts forever."

"True greatness is a passionate love for God that demonstrates itself in  an unquenchable love and concern for others."

"We are called to love God so much that we automatically care for people"

I'm looking forward to finishing this book.
