Hello dear friend,
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you are keeping well despite everything...
I am thinking about success today. Perhaps you are rich and at the top of your ladder. You may even have fame to go along with it. But. Does that mean that in the game of life you have actually been successful?
Like many things it depends on the way you look at it.
As this is a Christian blog let’s look at it in a Christocentric way. God is love and if we don’t actively consider the need to be loving in everything we do, then… Draw your own conclusion, I’m not here to judge you!
If you take a look at the following poem and compare it to your own life, your own interactions, you may find gaps or similarities in it.
Success is speaking words of praise,
in cheering other people's ways,
in doing just the best you can,
with every task and every plan.
It's silence when your speech would hurt,
politeness when your neighbour's curt.
It's deafness when the scandal flows,
and sympathy with others' woes.
It's loyalty when duty calls.
It's courage when disaster falls.
It's found in laughter and in song.
It's in the silent time of prayer,
in happiness and in despair.
In all of life and nothing less,
we find the thing we all success.
I hope you found those sentiments as thought provoking as me. Time for a quick prayer I think.
Dear Lord, I am sorry for all the times I am not loving in my actions and words.
Please help me as I choose to become successful as a Christian by being as loving as possible in all situations.
I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Wishing you a good day. Keep safe.
