“When possessions and money become a surrogate
for our real identity, who we are
is tied to things that rust and rot away.” – The Man in the Mirror, by Patrick Morley, p. 72.
It seems to me that maturity reflects a true understanding of
“success.” Instead of wealth and fame, as our culture defines
success, true success is achieving a significance based on
meaning and purpose. Now, if I understand my Bible correctly,
meaning and purpose (my true identity) come from God.
Therefore, true success is simply this: discovering God’s purpose
for me and living it. l have lots to do–time to get busy!
