Success or Service?

Albert Einstein had the portraits of two scientists on his wall for inspiration, Maxwell and Newton. Near the end of his life he replaced those two with portraits of Gandhi and Albert Schweitzer.

Said Einstein, "It is time to replace the image of success with the image of service."

Perhaps he'd been inspired by Schweitzer's words, "I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know, the only ones among you who will be truly happy are those who have sought and found how to serve."

Who, or what are you holding up as the image of success?

Philippians 4:19
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.
