Various cultures around the world view or define success differently than other cultures. Oddly enough, even within the same culture, success is often defined differently.
Exploring the way God defines success is a bit more challenging, yet far more important to consider.
The most common factor defining success is quantitative. An increase by a specific number determines the measure of success achieved.
If we examine the Bible, we will find that the success is measured by those who followed the word of the Lord.
When it comes to defining success, as God defines it, a good place to start is 1 Samuel 15:22-23.
