I personally get more satisfaction out of seeing people I know and have worked with to begin to succeed in life. I love it when they get recognized for their accomplishments. Nothing gives me greater pleasure. It’s good for them and it is good for me. God likes to see His creation, as an artist takes pleasure in his painting, his creation. God also takes great pleasure in seeing His creation being blessed. SUCCESS IS BEING HAPPY. And happiness is basically feeling good about yourself, your life, and your plans and future.
There are two forces that are vital to HAPPINESS in your LIFE.
The Gospel has two forces, the PERSON OF CHRIST and the PRINCIPLES OF CHRIST. One is the SON OF GOD and the other is the SYSTEM OF GOD. One is the LIFE of God and the other is the LAW of God. One is the KING, the other is the KINGDOM. One is the EXPERIENCE WITH GOD, the other is the EXPERTISE OF GOD. One is HEART RELATED and the other is MIND RELATED.
Both of these forces are necessary for happiness and success in life. The two work together good and if one is missing, life will not be complete.
Think about your own life and what it will take to truly make you happy.
