The Heart Tells All
The measure of your success is not what is in your wallet, but what is in your heart.
In a culture obsessed with money and possessions, God’s people need to constantly evaluate their definition of success. It’s not that the definition should change, mind you. We just need to make sure we aren’t following the culture by making our stuff the measure of our success.
You don’t have to tell someone, “It’s money that matters to me,” or “Money isn’t the measure of my success,” for them to know where you stand. Where you give your time and what you do with your money will speak for you more than your words.
Your heart will follow whatever is most important to you. If it’s money, that’s where your heart will be. If it’s putting God and others first, then your heart will show it. By heart we mean passion, emotion, priorities, and character. The heart tells all.
Those who love money will never have enough. How absurd to think that wealth brings true happiness!Ecclesiastes 5:10
