Sometimes being first in something is not really all it is cracked up to be! You may get the recognition but that may be about it. That was the case in 1951 this week. CBS-TV carried a four hour long commercial program that was seen in color for the first time. It was broadcast in New York City, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Boston.
The only problem with it was that most of the public did not have any color televisions yet. Even CBS only had three dozen sets themselves. But it was a first just the same! Thank goodness that there are a few more color sets around these days!
When you hear of someone doing so good and being first, pay closer to attention to how they arrived there. It may not be worth getting excited or stirred up about. This may remind you there are times that “the first shall be last and the last shall be first.” Try to refocus your vision and get you in tune with what God wants from you. Being #1 is not always the best place to be in the Kingdom.
