SUCCESS OR SIGNIFICANCE – WHAT WILL IT BE FOR YOU?
This came out of my devotional time several years ago. I thought to share this with you today. Be blessed!
Success is a function of having goals. Significance is a function of having a life purpose; a purpose that underlies, overarches, overrules and govern everything you do.
Men of success achieve their goals while men of significance change their world!
Ministry is not just about success, ministry is about significance – touching and changing men’s lives for God and for good.
We are not called to be successful alone; we are called to significance – changing our world for God (see Genesis 12:2). We are blessed, not just to be blessed, but to be a blessing!
Life is not about having goals and meeting them. Life is about living to give – changing lives, effecting eternal purposes in the hearts of men. The price of living and the joy thereof is – giving! We live to give. Period!
You are not called just to succeed by yourself. Your success is to make others succeed! You are blessed (not to accumulate things) but to bless others. And watch it, what you make happen for others, God will make happen for you. That is the secret of significance!
Move your world! Change your world! What you do for yourself dies with you. What you do for others live on till eternity.
I do not want to die when I’m dead. I want to live on because I hope to have bequeathed a legacy to posterity. See, a conquest that leaves no bequest has no significance!
The essence of our Christian calling is not success but significance. It’s time you shift your paradigm for living from success to significance!
May you be significant! And YOU WILL SUCCEED!
