Oct.4/17 – “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill

ErieauChurch copyWorldly success is often measured with money, possessions, and status. If you work hard you can be anything you want to be. NOT. You can be the best in the world. NOT. You can be master of your own destiny. NOT.

Hope is knowing success is the ratio of talents used to talents received. God given talents.

Define success by The Word not by the World.

The parable of the talents explains it best. Matthew 25:14-30.

Grace to you.

About bshiveofhope

I have worn different hats and travelled down many bunny trails in life- custodian, writer, florist, grandma, community nurse, mom, wife, Jesus Girl. With these vocations have come many stories and life experiences that I want to share with you. They're not all warm and fuzzy, and are sprinkled with humility, and sadness. That's life. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
