How to be successful in God's eyes

How can a person be successful? Notice this passage: "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon Earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal.

Learn to serve each other in humility

Don't you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of ...
