Celebrate others’ success

I planted the seed, Apollos watered it…

There are people who cannot stand the success of other people. Some have the mentality ‘If I cannot have it, I won’t let him have it either’. More subtly people spread lies or burn inside.

But can’t we celebrate when other people succeed? Without religion, people may do it when they realize that there is space for everyone. If we do not focus on others but do our own thing, we also can do well.

But having the mind of Christ is where we find that we can truly rejoice when other people succeed. If we planted the seed but do not get to enjoy the fruit and someone else do, the part that we played in planting the seed has immense value in the Kingdom of God. If someone succeeds at something good, it glorifies God, and it doesn’t matter if we were not a part of the success. We can join in the celebration.
