From good to great

One of my favourite books is Good to Great by Jim Collins. Before you all go out and buy a copy, I should warn you it is essentially a thesis about the characteristics that lead to excellence in business. I should really get out more!

Does the Bible have anything to add about ‘greatness’? Yes, lots, but much of it would probably confound Mr Collins . . .‘What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?' and 'But many who are first will be last, and the last first’.
