I did this cartoon almost 7 years ago! Wow!
I’m the first to admit that I want success in my business and financial life.
But I suggest that Jesus is the wrong person to model your life after if you want to enjoy popular success during your lifetime.
It totally depends on what kind of success you want. Do you want to be successful in the world? Or do you want to be successful in yourself?
I don’t think the story of Jesus portrays him as against success. But he was more interested in the quality of the person than the quantity in their bank account.
If you want to live a courageous life, a life in pursuit of truth, love, peace and justice, a life of radical independence, then I’d say Jesus is your man.
