The Ingredients of Excellence-Part IV
By: Rick Boxx
March 19, 2015

Daniel was a young man when King Nebuchadnezzar seized control of Jerusalem. He was forced against his will to go to a country far away and work for the King.

It would have been easy for Daniel to just “go through the motions” in work that he didn’t care to do. Instead, Daniel and his three close friends chose to perform with excellence! The King even noticed that their performance exceeded all others by ten times!

Their excellence flowed out of their desire to serve God first. Ephesians 6 teaches, “Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men.”

The final ingredient of excellence is to serve wholeheartedly, even if you’re not in your perceived ideal job. Serve as if you are serving Jesus himself. Eternal rewards will follow!
