When Christ has first place in our lives, we will experience many blessings. These include a . . .
- Quiet spirit.
- Stronger faith.
- Purified heart.
- Prepared mind.
Does that sound like a formula for "success?" I mean really, where is the accomplishment, where the money, where the things we need to relax?
Here's what I know - I have known many "successful" people - I have known many people of ordinary means and accomplishment - I have known many people without. I have found people who it is nice to be around in each category - and it was those things that made it so.
Dear God, grant me the desire for those attributes and not the attributes the world tells me matter.
