A thought about success

Proverbs 19:2 It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way.

Think about the second part! The King James Version says "he that hasteth sinneth" sinneth or miss the way. I think some days I miss the way! We try to get so much done to no avail and then fill as though we are a failure. The problem is we have success all backwards! In church we think it's about the biggest, in life we think it's about security, and in marriage if we can make it through that's success! I believe success goes far beyond these simple things! Our success should be gauged by these four truths:

1- God loves us! Ok He does! Isn't that amazing that we were designed for success by God!

2- Our family loves us! So what if I give Abby the whole world that's not success! What would I want Abby to say about me if were to never come home again? What would you want your family to say about you??????

3- Our friends love us! You can't pick your family but you can pick your friends! Would they veiw your life as a success?

4- We love us! Notice this is last because it should be! More than likely if the first three are true for us then the forth will probably be true as well! Do you like what you've become? Look at yourself in the mirror! What do you see? Can you move past your past and can you face your future? Most of the time we can't get away from the past because we goofed in one of the first three areas.

It's not to late to be successful! Quit trying to be superman or woman and focus on making these four areas of your life. The arena in which your success comes from.
