In the competitive landscape of life, it’s easy to believe that greatness is found primarily among those in the spotlight—the starting five, the headliners, the first picks. Yet, a recent family experience reminded me that true greatness often unfolds away from the initial spotlight of recognition.

My niece’s journey in the NJCAA Women’s Basketball Championship was a testament to this. Her team’s triumphant season, culminating in a nail-biting overtime victory to seal a perfect 37-0 record, was nothing short of amazing. My niece, though not a starter, played a pivotal role in this achievement.

Our family’s strong tradition in college sports means the values of perseverance and dedication are ingrained in us from a young age. Yet, watching my niece play in that championship game brought to light a new and meaningful lesson.

Coming off the bench, she frequently found herself in the heat of the action, especially in critical moments toward the end of the game. In the closing overtime moments, with the pressure at its peak, my niece shot the final two free throws, securing an eight-point win.

Even though she didn’t start, she was holding the ball at the end of the game. She added those two final baskets with a grace born of countless unseen hours of practice—99 out of 100 free throws made in solitude, a testament to her dedication.

This narrative extends far beyond the basketball court, drawing a powerful parallel to the biblical account of David.

David wasn’t part of the “starting five” to be considered by Samuel to be king. He was exactly where he needed to be, tending to his sheep, honing his skills, and nurturing his faith.

David’s story, much like my niece’s, illustrates that God’s timing and placement are perfect, even when they diverge from human expectations. David didn’t compare himself to his brothers, quit, give up, grow weary, or try to run into the house and get noticed. He was steadfast in what he was called to do. And when the time came, it was God who promoted him, not man.

Matthew 20:16 reminds us, “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.” This principle isn’t about diminishing the importance of starting roles, it’s about highlighting that significance and purpose are not confined to them. God sees the value in every position, every role, every moment of effort—especially those unseen by the world.

For anyone feeling overlooked or underappreciated, whether in business, personal ambitions, or spiritual growth, remember: the path God has for you is uniquely yours. It’s about staying the course, committing to excellence in the present, and trusting in his timing and vision for your life. Regardless of how insignificant your present role or business appears, let it serve as a foundation for skill development, professional growth and future advancement.

As we gather at the Expo in April, we’ll delve deeper into these themes, exploring how faith, perseverance and dedication shape our paths to greatness. It’s a matter of playing the long game, avoiding the pitfalls of comparison, and blooming where we are planted, underpinned by the solid foundation of Jesus Christ for our life and business.

Keep going, knowing God sees all your hard work. And when it’s your time to step up, be ready to shine, fully prepared for the moment you’re called into action!
