RADIO PROGRAM NO. 250 — What Is the Basis of Progress?
Questioner: The desire to get ahead is very worthwhile, but many people are confused about the basis of progress. Young people especially, I find, are rebelling against what they call the status treadmill. They don't want to think of progress merely in terms of things—grades in school, prestige, positions, clubs, cars, or status symbols of any kind. But if progress is not things, then what is it?
Speaker: There's a lot more to progress than just things. The Bible, which is so full of wonderful answers for all of our needs, brings out that the ingredient for progress is that which is within us, not that which is outside us. Christ Jesus said (Matt. 6:21), "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
An individual has to ask himself: What am I treasuring about myself? The value of this question is indicated in a very simple way by vocational counselors who try to help an individual evaluate himself before seeking employment.
