Love is measured by what we do, not in the results we see. (Florent Varak, French pastor and author)
The same thing could be said about success, but we most often judge success by the results of an effort. Is a sports team successful if it loses a game? As the old cliché puts it, “It’s not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game.” So, whether it’s love or success, we should judge the quality of the effort and process not just the result.
Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night . . . Then you will be prosperous and successful (Joshua 1:8).
