Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

 

The Sweet Taste of Success?
by Charles R. Swindoll

He who trusts in his riches 
will fall, but the righteous will 
flourish like the green leaf. 
Proverbs 11:28


Our society has gorged itself on the sweet taste of success. 

We've filled our plates from a buffet of books that range from dressing for success to investing for success. . . . 

We've gobbled down stacks of notebooks, cassette albums, and video tapes in our hunger for greater success.

The irony of all this is that . . . instead of fulfillment, we experience the bloated sensation of being full of ourselves—our dreams, our goals, our plans, ourprojects, our accomplishments. 

The result of this all-you-can-eat appetite is not contentment. It's nausea.
