What Is The Measure of Your Success?

Through The Looking Glass2

Henry Ford was the founder of the Ford Motor Company, and an avid inventor. He actually held 161 patents for a variety of inventions and products. He had this to say about the acquisition of money…

“A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business”.

Although a successful and wealthy businessman, Mr. Ford understood that money was a means to an end, but was not the end itself. He knew that money was the reward of success, not necessarily the measure of success.

In first Timothy, Paul states that…

the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. ~ I Timothy 6:10

In our 21st century desire for gain, let us not forget the One from Whom all blessings flow, and in the words of John Wesley…

Make all you can… save all you can… give all you can”.
