Not long ago today I opened the weather page in our local paper, and before I had a chance to look at the weather forecast, I read the big letters at the top of the page where it says, “Blooper mars successful season”. (The Northland Age, October 17, 2013)
Before that today I picked up the publication called COFFEE NEWS (Vol 151:3), at McDonald’s here in Kaitaia and there I read “Recipe for Success.” In the same publication I am finding the word “success” twice in the article called “Think positive.” Doing well is also mentioned.
Who does not want to be successful?
A long time ago, I read what the Bible says about success:
“Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you;
1. do not turn from it
a. to the right
b. or to the left,
that you may be successful wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:7
“Do not let this Book of the law depart from your mouth;
1. meditate on it
a. day and
so that you may be careful to do everything written in it.
Then you will be prosperous and successful.” – Joshua 1:8
When you read about “success” again, please remember what the BIBLE says about it and the forecast for Northland, Kaitaia and Kerikeri, is sunshine, at least for the next two days.
