The Meaning of Success

She’s wanted to be a poet, an architect, a missionary, a pet-hotel owner. Which has us all talking about what “success” really means in God’s kingdom. In a culture that defines success by the size of your 401(k), your cubicle and your paycheck, how does the Christ-follower keep perspective?

Will you follow me over to The High Calling today to read our story and to contribute to the discussion? We value your thoughts.


It’s God-Bumps & God-Incidences Day here at Getting Down With Jesus. The “success story” at The High Calling is my God-Bumps & God-Incidences contribution today. As always, I look forward to reading your stories. I am energized by the ways that God “shows up” in all of our lives. Let’s keep telling our stories, OK? We’re honoring His great name when we speak of the God-Things.


To participate:

1 — Write a post about the God-Things that make you go Hmmmm….

2 — Add a button, found here.

3 — Link the URL for your post in the linky.

    All for Him,
