Quotes Plus 3/4/2012

“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!
