Take some time to read the devotional thoughts below, in preparation for Sunday's message:
Do you ever feel like no matter what you do or how hard you work, you’re just not really successful? Our culture keeps setting the bar higher and higher. There are so many voices telling us what we need to do to be successful and sending images to our phones and screens with carefully curated images of “successful” people. As Christians how and in what ways are we called to be successful? How would Jesus define success? How can we reorient our lives toward the life Jesus has for us?
- Do you ever feel like you aren’t successful enough? What causes that feeling?
- Who benefits from making you feel like you’re not successful enough?
- How would your life be different if you redefined success in a more life-giving way?
