Three friends were trying to define the word “success”. One said, “Success is being invited to the oval office to advise the president.”
The second friend said, “That’s pretty good, but I think success is being invited to the oval office to advise the president, and the red phone rings, but he doesn’t answer it.”
The third one said, “Here is how you define success. It is being invited to the oval office to advise the president, and the red phone rings. He answers it and says, “Here, it’s for you!”
I think that Joshua 1:7 gives us a very good definition of success—“Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.”
Success is courageously obeying the word of God.
How successful are you?
