You make a valid point- simple yet profound. Success has to be more than in monetary terms. Money cannot bring contentment , fulfilment and self worth. The story about Jesus and the rich young ruler is a case in point. This man has success and material possessions by the bucket load but he lacked inner peace and contentment- something only God can supply.
Money, has its place and striving to better oneself financially is laudable but not at any cost and the cost of one’s soul.
Lakia once again your blog make me and all those who read it think about the fundamentals of life and faith. Thank you.
Thank you so much for your response 🙂 I like how you compared that to the rich young ruler! Please stay in touch, as there will be more blogs to follow!!
I hope so. Sorry my response was anonymous. On holiday in Old Nessebar and hadn’t signed into my account.
