How’s life treating you? We’ve all been asked the question, but how are you supposed to answer it? How do you measure how your life is going?
We all go through ups and downs . . . good times and bad times. When things are going well, we feel good about ourselves, accomplished, happy. Then there’s the trying times . . . nobody is without trials! There are times you feel like a failure . . . when nothing is going right! Those times when you question, is it really worth it? Each of us have regrets, and shortcomings. So how do you gauge whether your life has been a success or a failure?
Have you made your mark in this life? Were you elected to serve in office? Did you write a great documentary, or piece of literature? Did you climb the corporate ladder? Or star in a leading role? So maybe you’re not famous . . .
Is it how much money you’ve been able to accumulate? The car you drive? The house you live in? The circle of friends you’ve established?
Or could it be about family? Have you been able to keep your marriage together? Are your kids doing right? Does everybody still get along and act like a family should?
What makes a person a success, or a failure?
What this world deems successful is a far cry from God’s idea of a life well spent. So when we stand before a Holy God, how’s He going to judge our life?
