Do you want to be successful?
Everywhere we go we are bombarded with advertisements and information about what success looks like. The kind of success everyone is chasing usually involves more money, bigger houses, nicer cars, beautiful people. But I’m not sure that’s what success really is.
Last year I was reading about a mega church pastor who lives in a $1.8M dollar house and bought his wife a new Lamborghini as an apology gift for having an emotional affair on her. She accepted the gift!
As I read about it, I thought to myself, “okay okay, different world, not my venue, not gonna judge.”
But then I learned HE CHEATED AGAIN this past year!
And I realized, it doesn’t matter how much money, wealth, fame and “success” you have, you still won’t be fulfilled by it! Even pastors & spiritual people are lured & fooled by their desire for worldly success. But the worldly view of success is a LIE.
The #verseoftheday today is Joshua 1:8
‘Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and SUCCEED in all you do. ‘
This was written thousands of years ago.
God has always been saying
Read Gods word, submit to Gods word, and you will be successful.
Success isn’t about acquiring & attaining assets, knowledge, or notoriety. It’s all about listening to God & doing what he says. It’s about knowing what God says to do and the doing it. That’s success.
