Mediocrity is a curse that God wants to remove from our lives.
As Christians, we should reach for a higher standard of excellence than the world sets. God deserves our very best!
Superior quality should be the hallmark of everything a Christian is and does as we have the responsibility to bear a good testimony whenever we produce works of superior quality.
Conversely, we become a poor testimony when we produce works of inferior quality.
