Success by David Hyman, Holy Trinity Chatham

DavidHymanAs followers of Jesus, how should we measure success?

David Hyman finds that it is not as the world defines success, but more than that, it is about one's relationship with Jesus that brings true success.

Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” 14 But he said to him, t“Man, uwho made me a judge or arbitrator over you?”15 And he said to them, v“Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”16 And he told them a parable, saying, w“The land of a rich man produced plentifully,17 and he thought to himself, x‘What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’18 And he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my ybarns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.19 And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have ample goods laid up zfor many years; relax, aeat, drink, be merry.”’20 But God said to him,b‘Fool! zThis night cyour soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, dwhose will they be?’21 So is the one ewho lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”
