How do you define success? That is one of the most important questions in life. If you do not define what success means for you, then someone else will. If you chase the wrong definition of success, your life will be fundamentally misdirected. Proverbs teaches us in these two verses how to understand success from God's point of view.
Life and Peace in Obedience (Proverbs 3:1-2)
The reward for obedience to God's commands is life and peace. In Christ, this reward is completely yours! His perfect obedience is credited to your account. Not only does his obedience count for you, but he gives the grace and power for you to live a life of obedience now.
