SUCCESS – WHAT IS IT?
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.
