Sometimes as I rush around during the day trying to make a living and take care what I think is important, I forget how necessary love is—to my success. We often think just the opposite—that is, we must trample on others, cheat, lie, or jockey for position—to get ahead. But God’s amazing Word says: “Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.” (Proverbs 3:3-4) 

Success is linked to “steadfast love” which—comes from God.

Proverbs makes it clear—the ball is in our court.

We must decide to write God’s love in our heart. Loving God is the key to the only success that matters. God makes love our first reaction. His love becomes the loudest voice in our heart and is the best evidence in our life. To make this a reality, we must be determined to search for God more intensely than we’ve ever searched for anything else in our life. Think of what you long for the most–and put God in that place. Let nothing stand in your way to find Him—not yourself, your job, leisure, pleasure, friendship, spouse—let no one or nothing stand between you and knowing Him. 

When we are faithfully loving God, that is, obeying His commandments and seeking His ways, love does not forsake us. In fact, we are writing love on the “tablet of our heart.” The result? We find all the “favor and good success in the sight of God and man” we’ve been looking for. God’s love fills us with all the success and favor that money cannot buy.

God, who is love, gives us everything we need for true success.
