(That quote cracked me up...from Mae West no less!)
Remember that the most successful man of all time said:
"He who loses his life for my sake will gain it...and what profit is it if a man gains the whole world but loses his soul?" Matthew 16:25-26
Lots of times, because we were greatly blessed to be born in America, we get all sorts of other icing on the cake of true success. But the minute we start looking for those things as the primary goal, we’ve leaned our ladder on the wrong wall again.
