2 Kings 9:11 (NKJV) “As for Mephibosheth,” said the king, “he shall eat at my table like one of the king’s sons.”
Big people have had at least one big failure (usually many).
They are humble, they are patient, they are merciful toward others—especially people who are struggling and who have failed. They understand because they’ve been there and (this is the key) they’re willing to admit it.
Little people, on the other hand, are judgmental, critical, and legalistic toward people that have failed. They hide behind this smug superior façade because they do not have a strong enough character to admit that they also have struggles and have failed.
Big people make you feel like your failure is not the end of the world; little people make you feel like your world has come to an end because of your failure.
- The ONE THING for today: Are you a big person or a little person?
“Character wise, you can always tell the big people in the room, they’re the ones that make everyone else feel like they’re a big person too.”
