Will You Still be Fruitful in your Success?

Will you still be fruitful in your success?
By Marie Grossett

I’m not talking about material success: rather, your attitude. When God opens the door to your ‘big break,’ will you still maintain or strive for the fruit of the Spirit to be manifested in your life?
