STEWARDSHIP CORNER

Success on God’s Terms

“Carefully follow the terms of this covenant, so that you may prosper in everything you do.”-Dt. 29:9 NIV Two men were talking and one said, “Do you know the secret of success?”  The other replied, “No, what is it?”  The first man said, “I can’t tell you because it’s a secret!”  As God defines it, success is not a secret.  He repeatedly says in His word that he wants us to be successful.  But as our faces differ, so does God’s plan for each of us.  When God created man, one of the first things He told him to do was “be fruitful and multiply”.  In the book of Job, it says “Though your beginning was small, yet your latter end would increase abundantly.”  God will bless you, in order to make you a blessing to others.
