We tend to be excellent at things that will not last forever such as our jobs, our families, or even our sin. Some of those things are not bad things to be skilled at, but we need to make sure that we are putting in all that it takes to be excellent in our spiritual lives rather than settling for being so-so. The Apostle Paul tells us to run the race in such a way that we are focused on that finish, on Jesus. We only have one life to live and so we must live it knowing that in the end we will be able to see every opportunity that we missed to grow spiritually ourselves and help others. May we be constantly aware of those opportunities while we are here so that in the end we can know we gave it our all.
