True success

Dear brothers and sisters,

  • Many people think a happy love will give them success. If they have a happy love, their life is successful.
  • Other people think money will give them success. If they have a lot of money, their life is successful.
  • Other people think career will give them success. If they have a successful career, their life is successful.
  • Other people think diploma will give them success. If they have many good diplomas, their life is successful.
  • Other people think health will give them success. If they have good health, their life is successful.
  • Other people think meaningful work (supporting others, giving blood, teaching, heart healing…) will give them success. If they do many meaningful works, their life is successful.

So they seek many kinds of success. They collect many kinds of success. The more kinds of success they have, the more successful they feel. The more successful they feel, the more proud they feel.

If they don’t have many kinds of success, or, if they don’t have the kind of success they want, they feel failed – their life is failed. They feel bad about themselves.

Really?

How do you measure the worth of a person? In wealth or strength?

How do you measure the worth of a woman? In how much she gained or how much she gave?

How do you judge what a man is worth? By what he builds or buys?

Life is not measured by how much you own (Luke 12:15, NLT).

Dear brothers and sisters,

If we hold God’s hand today, from morning to night, our today is a successful day, and we are successful today.

If we are still calm with those who betray us, we are successful.

If we are still calm with things we don’t want to encounter, we are successful.

If we are still calm with some kind of loss, we are successful.

If we are still calm when we don’t get what we want, we are successful…

True success.

We’ll not need all kinds of success to feel successful. We may not have any kind of success (a perfect lover, a lot of money, a dream job, good health, meaningful work…), but if we hold God’s hand all day, from morning to night, our life is successful. True success.

Have a nice day.
