Descending Into Greatness by Bill Hybels
I read this book in an effort to find humility, but I really found humility through a life “mishap”. This book allowed me to build on it.
By yielding my power to self-rule, I open myself to my God-designed destiny. I discovered that the result of surrendering control is a lightened burden. I was no longer responsible for results. Descending is not so much who I am or what I have but what I do with both. Who’s agenda shall I advance – God’s or mine? The author provided wise counsel regarding the path to greatness. It isn’t where I had been looking. Following Christ is not a onetime decision. It’s hundreds of decisions every day.
