It’s amaz­ing how we hu­mans are al­ways try­ing to achieve suc­cess. What is it any­way?

Well, you can al­most use any mea­sure you want to. You can mea­sure it by fancy homes, cars, clothes and the com­pany you keep.

But the mea­sure of your real suc­cess is one you can’t re­ally spend. Real suc­cess is mea­sured by the way your chil­dren de­scribe you when they’re talk­ing to a friend.

I carry one de­light­ful re­mem­brance in my heart. My son, when he was twenty, was out with his un­cle one night and said to him, “My dad is my best friend”. Now that he’s nearly forty we still do as much as we can to­gether.

On an­other oc­ca­sion my daugh­ter wrote in an as­sign­ment when she was a teenage, “I want to have the faith in Je­sus my fa­ther has”.

Je­sus Christ said of his Fa­ther, “I have glo­ri­fied you on the earth. I have fin­ished the work which you have given me to do.” John 17:4.

What a suc­cess Je­sus was – He died and rose again that re­pen­tant mankind could have sal­va­tion from their sins.
