God is no statistician

In contempory society, people are normally judged by numbers, such as how much money they grossed last year or how many new clients they brought in.

Given the world’s view of success, it is easy to assume that God thinks the same way. Some people tend to focus on Church attendance, number of volunteer activities or the amount of money they put into the offering.

However, God is not some great statistician up above. He is more concerned about the state of our heart than the number of good deeds we perform.

So focus on simply being faithful to him. Spend time with him, learn his ways and become someone who knows him.

Do this, and success will take care of itself. As the bible says, “Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!” (Matthew 25:21).

All we need to do is be faithful and keep trying, even though success does not come at once.
