We all want to be successfulit's built deep into our inner workings. Everyone wants to succeed. But sin has corrupted our view of success and our ability to achieve it. Scripture deals with both aspects of this corruption. Personally, I have recently focused mainly on bringing my own view of success into line with biblical representations of success. But as I read the bible this morning, I came across an interesting treatment of what we should do to achieve success. It comes from the life of King Hezekiah as found in 2 Chronicles 31:
2 Chron. 31:20-21
Thus Hezekiah did throughout all Judah, and he did what was good and right and faithful before the Lord his God. And every work that he undertook in the service of the house of God and in accordance with the law and the commandments, seeking his God, he did with all his heart, and prospered.
