The Right Book


There is one thing we all have in common. It doesn’t matter if you are liberal or conservative, tall or short, young or old. We all want to be successful.

Admittedly, we define “success” in a myriad of ways. But however you define it, you want it. We all do, and that’s okay.

I love to visit bookstores. I often find myself gravitating to the self-help section. On a recent perusal of a local store, I came across the following titles: Passport to Prosperity, Winning Moves, Good Greed, Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun, Winning Through Intimidation, Cashing In On the American Dream, The Art of Selfishness, How to Retire at 35, Techniques that Take You to the Top, How to Get What You Really Want, and Secrets to Quick Success.

Who are we kidding? Even if these books worked, is there really anything to be gained by being selfish or rich?

Jesus said the dumbest thing anyone can do is to get lots of worldly goods, but lose his own soul. I found that in another book. It’s called the Bible.

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16).
