How do you define success?
I was asked that question by a group of people in the past couple of weeks. It's a good question to ask someone, don't you think? It tells a lot about who they think they are and what they think is valuable.
What would you answer?
If you were in front of a group of people who asked, what would you say? After you envisioned everyone in their underwear or employed your favorite other trick to make you not-so-nervous in front of people, what would you open your mouth and say?
I said, "Faithfulness."
In my most important relationships, it comes down to that.
Faithfulness to Jesus.
Faithfulness to my wife.
Faithfulness to my kids.
Faithfulness to my church.
Faithfulness to my calling.
As far as I can read it, it simply comes down to that.
But that's just me thinking thoughts...
