In the race for the United States Presidency, most of the candidates hoping to become their party’s nominee are very rich. Donald Trump claims to be worth ten billion dollars. Hilary Clinton and her husband Bill are said to have over 100 million. Many people count success to be the amassing of great wealth, power, or notoriety. H.G. Wells, author of “The Time Machine” and “War of the Worlds”, defined success as the ratio between our potential and what we have actually accomplished in our life time. In other words, “Have I lived up to what I see as my potential?” God defines success differently. He told Joshua, “This book (the Bible) shall not depart from your mouth…observe to do according to all that is written in it, for … then you will have good success.” Or, “Have I become the person God wants me to be? Success starts with admitting my spiritual bankruptcy, placing my faith in His Son, Jesus Christ and living for Him.
