Who you are becoming is more important than what you are doing. (Jeff Bogue, pastor)
Most of us like to look at achievements and accomplishments to judge someone’s success. But Bogue suggests a more important issue: what you really are as a person. Another way of putting it: what you are is more important than what you do. Why? Because what you do reflects what you are, and what you are determines what you do.
Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold. (Proverbs 22:1)
