Introduction – The Foundation of Success
Success is often associated with accomplishments or obtaining things such as lots of money, material possessions, or high positions of power. The more you have, the more successful you are viewed by the people around you. Have you considered what success is in God’s eyes? Let’s talk about the world’s view of success compared to God’s view as found in the Bible.
According to the dictionary success is:
- the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors.
- the attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like.
This definition of success is based on tangible things and what other people think of you. There is a path to success that is TRUE and founded upon God’s word. Success for the believer is based on the Word and not attempts at gaining worldly popularity or material gain. Success in God is not temporal; it is not temporary and doesn’t fade, even if your worldly accomplishments fade.
