Good is the enemy of Great. This is ambiguous. I see it. Can you see it?
This can be the battle cry for two opposing forces. One good and one evil.
Let’s first define “good” as mediocre or settling for less than perfection which would then help to define “great” as getting close to perfection. In this case, it is the highest good to strive for greatness.
Now let’s define “good” as godly. That changes things doesn’t it?! Who is the enemy of those who are “godly” except those who are evil. And those who are evil strive for greatness but their acting definition of “great” is “power.” In this instance, Godly people are the enemy of those who strive for power.
We can’t simply look at words on the surface anymore, we have to look deeper into the intent of those who use the words. Hidden meanings, hidden agenda’s that appear benign on the surface but later can be twisted.
So can you see how this can be the battle cry for two opposing forces? For those who are “good” and for those who are “great.”
