Someone asked my wife today, “what does it mean to be a success?” The question stemmed from a song lyric or televised interview (can’t remember the details) that pointed to money, cars, and stuff as being the measure of success.
That got me to thinking – what does it mean to be successful? In America? As a man or woman? As a parent or spouse? Most importantly, as a Believer in and follower of the Christ?
I’m not sure I have an answer yet, just a bunch of ideas. Usually success is “measured” by some form of yardstick – that is, by a standard like how big is your house, or how many TVs or cars do you own. So I guess I’m really asking, “What are the measures/standards for you based on your place/status in life? And based on your world view?
