Success and Humility

I don’t want to be successful; I want to be useful. (quoted by Danny Wright, pastor)

Wright continues: “And to be useful, I need to be humble. There are many people who are too strong to be useful, but there is no one too weak to be useful.” Someone else has said that it is not ability that is important; it’s availability. These are some hints for succeeding in life: be useful, be available, be humble. And be yourself; don’t pretend to be someone else.

Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3)
