Measure of Success

DAILY VERSE

“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”

Matthew 5:5

 

DEVOTION

A revolutionary idea at the time, to claim that the meek should have a reward? We’re so entrenched in materialism today that you would assume Jesus would say that, “Those who have a lot of money will inherit a nice car, home, and cool gadgets.” God didn’t intend for our focus to be on things, but on Him. What is your measure for success? Does it align with God’s?

Lord, give me a heart that seeks you and not the things of this world.
