Excellence is not the Problem

Obviously, excellence is not the problem; we mean quality or quantity, hype or substance, perpetual novelty or maturity.  If we were to measure excellence by God’s standards, the list might seem a little strange: “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control” (Galatians 5:22).
