Surpassing Honor

How could it be that God would place his name on me? How could it be that he would pick me up in his hands and use me as a tool of renewal, restoration, and redemption? No matter how much worldly success I achieve, no matter how much wealth I acquire, no matter how much honor in the eyes of others I am given, and no matter how many wonderful things I experience, there is nothing that could ever compete or compare with the surpassing honor of knowing God and being chosen to be part of what he is doing on earth. 
Broken-Down House, Paul David Tripp, p. 201.
