Being The Best You Can Be
A commitment to excellence is a commitment to being the best you can be. This is not the same as a commitment to perfection or flawlessness. If that's the main goal, then there is going to be a lot of frustration, unhappy people, and angry words.
Nor is it a commitment to being the best, but the best that you can be. If it's helpful to measure yourself against someone you admire, that's fine as long as it's not just a superiority trip.
So, how do we become the best we can be? Well, that depends on what you're doing. If you're a musician, then you need to be committed to your instrument or instruments. Take the time to practise and improve your playing skills. Try to memorise the songs so that you can focus on the Lord rather than just the music.
If you're a singer, then try giving your voice a regular workout. Take the time to learn the songs so that you don't have to glue your eyes to the lyric sheet.
If you're in the sound and vision team, then being the best you can be is a commitment to trying to make sure that nobody notices that you're even there. After all, the only time people really notice you is when something goes wrong!
