DEUTERONOMY 8:10-20
JULY 20, 1997 A.M.
SERIES: SUCCESS IN THE MARKET PLACE
Larry Wynn

INTRODUCTION

A. SUCCESS: “ACHIEVING A DESIRED RESULT.”
THAT IS THE WAY THE DICTIONARY DEFINES
THE WORD.

1. THIS DEFINITION LENDS ITSELF TO A
NEUTRAL MEANING OF THE WORD.

2. WHEN DEFINED THIS WAY SUCCESS
CAN BE GOOD OR BAD. IT ALL
DEPENDS ON THE DESIRED RESULT.

B. FOR THE NEXT THREE WEEKS I WANT TO
TALK ABOUT SUCCESS IN THE MARKET
PLACE.

1. WHERE IS THE MARKET PLACE?

2. THAT PLACE WHERE WE SPEND MUCH
OF OUR TIME. THE WORK PLACE.

3. WE WILL DEAL WITH:

a. SUCCESS.

b. ENJOYING ONE’S WORK.

c. HANDLING THE HEAT.

C. SUCCESS ISN’T A DIRTY WORD.


ILL. TO OFTEN ONE FINDS HIMSELF EXCUSING
HIS SUCCESS, BECAUSE PEOPLE TEND TO
LOOK DOWN ON THE SUCCESSFUL.

D. SUCCESS IS RELATIVE. TODAY, I WANT TO
TALK ABOUT HOW TO BE A REAL SUCCESS.

E. DEUTERONOMY 8 WARNS US TO HANDLE
THE BLESSINGS THAT COME OUR WAY
CORRECTLY IF WE WANT TO CONTINUE TO
BE SUCCESSFUL.

I. AVOID TRAPS OF SUCCESS.

A. SUCCESS BECOMES FAILURE WHEN GOD IS
IGNORED.

1. THE BIBLE RECORDS MANY PEOPLE
WHO COULD NOT HANDLE SUCCESS.

ILL. SOLOMON

2. AMAZING, HOW BLESSED WE ARE,
BUT HOW FORGETFUL OF GOD WE
ARE.

B. SUCCESS BECOMES FAILURE WHEN ONE
NEGLECTS RELATIONSHIPS.

1. BE CAREFUL OF THE WORLD’S
STANDARD OF SUCCESS.


2. ILL. A MAN BUILDS A STRONG
BUSINESS, ATTAINS A POSITION OF
IMPORTANCE AND NOTORIETY,
BECOME INDEPENDENTLY WEALTHY,
IS INFLUENTIAL IN GOVERNMENTAL
MATTERS. THE WORLD SAYS HE IS A
SUCCESS. YET HIS LIFE MAY BE
FALLING APART SPIRITUALLY,
MORALLY, AND PHYSICALLY.
3. ILL. PATRICK MORLEY: “THE
CULTURE WE LIVE IN VALUES
POSSESSIONS AND
ACCOMPLISHMENTS HIGHER
THAN PEOPLE AND
RELATIONSHIPS.”
