The Only True Success
[The following is substantially the text of the Christian Science program presented on Sunday, July 28, over the Columbia Broadcasting System "Church of the Air." The speaker was John R. Peterson.]
The only real success that any man can ever achieve lies in his demonstration of the fact that he is at one with God. It lies in his practical living of the Godlike qualities which constitute his true being.
We learn from the Bible that God created man in His own image and likeness. One's true success is measured by the clarity with which he shows forth that divine image and likeness.
Merely making money, even a great deal of it, isn't really success. Fame and business and social position often escape the most persistent effort. By themselves, these don't really bring happiness or true success. As Paul put it in his letter to the Corinthians (I Cor. 2:9), "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."
