This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. (Joshua 1:8)
Spiritual success does not come from adopting worldly standards. This is not saying that all worldly standards are bad but to be spiritually successful, we have to look to the one that sets the standard for spiritual success. God is a God of order and e deals with specifics. To begin, we must follow the patterns of God which are found in His word.
