Faithfulness & Success

Our greatest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter
— Francis Chan

Regardless of what you do for a living, I believe we all want to make a difference in our world. Many talk about making a difference while few are actually out on the front lines of the mission field actually making a difference. Why? Often I think because we have a faulty definition of success which therefore influences our inaction to "get out there" and engage in the good work God has called you to do wherever live, work, play, or do business.

One of our most difficult tasks is to properly understand, and live within, the divine tension between obedience and faithfulness which therefore becomes our definition of success. 

In this video, I hope you'll be encouraged that as we devote our lives to fulfilling "our part" we will see that God's got a beautiful plan that He's unfolding and He's invited you into His story!

There are many definitions of success. In this video, Brett Ricley shares what the Bible says about being successful as well as how we should define faithfulness.
