Spelling S-U-C-C-E-S-S for your children
by Cheryl Donavan
But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. (1 Timothy 6: 9-10)
Competition seems to be the driving force of our society; as a result success is often defined by our ability to “beat” our opponent.
Good schools, good grades, satisfying careers, all of these directly affect our success by society’s standards. Even when we don’t think we define success monetarily it’s safe to say that we don’t want our children to live in poverty.
So then how should we define success? Well if God makes the standard, success would include listening and obeying his word, trusting in him, and seeking after godly wisdom.
Worldly success always comes with a price. The question is, is it worth it?
Good jobs and financial security are good aspirations; but they shouldn’t be mistaken as ones purpose in life.
Who’s determining what success means to your family?
