Many people equate wealth with success, while to others it means power. Some want financial freedom, while others value time freedom. Be that as it may, success in worldly terms is nothing compared to success in the afterlife.
What then is success in the afterlife? For me, it means only one thing. That is, living life with only one goal…getting closer to God, so that in the end, we will get our heavenly reward. Nothing else matters.
Most people like to work hard for earthly riches. In my book, the successful person is someone who accepts Jesus Christ as his/her Lord and Savior. This wise person knows that Jesus is the only Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one will go to the Father except through Jesus. As such, this person who strives for success in the afterlife will do anything and everything to get to heaven. How does he/she achieve this? By accepting Jesus and doing good deeds to earn the riches of heaven.
Now, that is what I call, heavenly success!
