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

We need an 'even if' faith

For almost 31 years, I have preached and taught the truths of the Bible. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart…," "We walk by faith, not by sight…," and so on. I have emphasized that God can be trusted, no matter the circumstances, and have done so with conviction.
