Columns from Tabletalk Magazine, January 2017

3 Min Read


The January issue of Tabletalk examines what Scripture says about success. In our day, when there is much confusion in the world and in the church about what success means, God's people must reaffirm the goodness of success as the Lord defines it. Rightly understood, success is something to which the Lord calls all believers to aspire. Success is to be pursued, not feared or looked upon with suspicion, for God calls us to keep His commandments with steadfast love and faithfulness so that we might find "favor and good success in the sight of God and man" (Prov. 3:1–4). This issue assists believers in understanding true success, pursuing success, and responding appropriately when we do not feel successful.
