“Success”?

What is a God’s-eye view of success? A time is coming nobody will argue or merely surmise on this point.

I suggest that it is often -not- getting “our own way”. sheer math, garnering higher numbers including the volume of people whom you or I may have convinced, enlisted in business, or joined up to whatever club or social site we’ve organized. It isn’t about who did or didn’t get impressed by whatever it is we’ve said, “accomplished” on some level or other. All these are surface issues -there is a far greater depth than these.

“SUCCESS”: noun- 1530s, “result, outcome,” from Latin successus “an advance, a coming up; a good result, happy outcome,” noun use of past participle of succedere “come after, follow after; go near to; come under; take the place of,” also “go from under, mount up, ascend,” hence “get on well, prosper, be victorious,” from sub “next to, after” -Source: https://www.etymonline.com/search?q=success

One day all “success” will be sized up for what it truly was. Metaphorically, Jesus tells us wheat vs. chaff, Paul adds gold-silver-precious stones vs. wood-hay-stubble. It will not be mine nor any human judgment that weighs “success” in that moment. Sobering and important regarding the choices we make, paths we take, actual motives behind our actions in life.

As always, thanks for stopping by. -Glenn
