Christians Need Not Be Concerned with Success or Failure

Success and failure are Master words, meaning they are to be decided and defined by the Master. As Christians, we are not our own masters and thus need not be concerned with words such as “Success” or “Failure” in the worldly sense. But Faithfulness, now that is our concern as stewards.

Think of it this way, God doesn’t need you or your talents. He can do more with one act of faithfulness than you can do in 10,000 lifetimes.

Success in life, then, is simply idenitifying what God has called you to and being completely faithful in it.

Identity in Your Idols

What do you find your identity in?

If you want to know, just ask yourself, “What am I most afraid of losing?”

In the answer, you’ll find your idol. In that idol, you find your identity.
