I'm not sure I understand what this means...?

Well, I could tell you to look up the chapter/context and puzzle it out. *g* I'm not entirely sure myself, except that I think it means that you don't have to be a particular kind of success to matter. What you do is acceptable to God if you're doing it to your utmost, if it's focused on and through Him, whether it looks like a success to the world around you or not. It's measured according to what you have, not what you don't have. (ETA: hence my use of my Donna icon--brilliant in who she is, though she doesn't see it.)
