Seeking Success

We are a success-saturated society. The tell-tale signs are everywhere. Each year dozens of books and magazines, scores of audio and video tapes, and hundreds of seminars offer ideas, motivation, techniques, and promises of prosperity.

Curiously, however, few ever address what it is most folks want (but seldom find) in their pursuit of success: contentment, fulfillment, satisfaction, and relief . . . .

At the risk of sounding ultra-simplistic, I'd like to offer some counsel to those seeking success . . . .

First, submit yourself to those who are wise . . . .

Second, humble yourself under God's mighty hand . . . .

Third, throw yourself on the mercy and care of God.

Those who are in pursuit of success seldom find contentment and satisfaction.
