JESUS: What is Success

“But seek you first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)

One of the definitions of success is: The attainment of wealth, position, honor or the like. This is the world’s definition of success. It is not what Jesus considers success.

“Discover a place where your cares dissolve like water into the sand.” All it will cost you is starting at $400,000. This was an ad for a new beach community. This is what everyone wants and this is what everyone thinks is success. Everyone wants a place to find peace and to get away from the world. The world cannot give you peace at any price. Peace and healing comes only with your relationship with Jesus Christ.

Success and peace comes only as Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:33. Seek a relationship with God and He will give you peace and success. The true success in life is working to bring the kingdom of heaven down to earth.

Jesus tells us in the following verse, ‘Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble.” (Matthew 6:34)This is true success; living each day trusting God to provide our needs.
