Net Profits - Dwight Hill

... a weekly letter of encouragement.

28 May, 1997 - Singapore

Good Morning!


We're talking about that "Fortune 500" type who GRABS THE BRASS RING AND MAKES THINGS HAPPEN!

Here's the brief autobiography of one such man:

"I built...

"I made...

"I bought...

"I owned...

"I amassed...

"I acquired..."

And finally:


In other words, he arrived, having achieved affluence. Visibility. Status. Perhaps even respect.

And then he indulged! "I denied myself nothing..." (Ecclesiastes 2:1-10)

But here is the kicker: According to his autobiography,

"...When I surveyed all that my hands had done and what I had toiled to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind; nothing was gained under the sun." (Ecc. 2:11)

How is this possible? Had he not achieved it all? The answer is, "No, he had not." And the reason?

How tragic it would be to have climbed the ladder of success, only to realize too late (as did Solomon) that you had leaned it against the wrong wall.

SO THE QUESTION IS: "Which wall is your ladder leaning against?"

My prayer is that you are having a great week.
