This Is Not For Fame And Attention

The people sent by God to watch over the world and steer it towards where he wants, do not do it for fame and attention. There is a big problem if becoming popular and taking the credit is more important to you than anything else. First of all, it is not christian to seek attention in that manner. A real Christian wants to give God all the glory. Secondly, it detracts from your effectiveness and overall productivity. The best you will ever get from fame and attention is a false sense of accomplishment. Courting media attention will deceive you into thinking you have achieved something. When in reality, you have not even gotten started.

God is not calling you for fame and to make you a celebrity. Jesus instructed, “when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing” (Matthew 6:3 ESV). Your role as a watchman tasked with steering us towards a better future is sensitive, and requires discretion. There is a toxic celebrity culture that is choking your world right now, and this must be resisted and destroyed. A prosperous society is driven by values and institutions that represent those values. Your society will not work if all that matters are people hugging the limelight, and trying to become celebrities at all cost.

Jesus made it clear that he came to glorify the father, and to point people towards the father. Your number one goal is to do the will of your Father in heaven. To do so while trying to attract attention from people, will corrupt your mission. When becoming popular is more important to you than pleasing God, you will compromise your principles. You have to remember that it is God’s vision. You are called to labour in his vineyard, to play a role in the plan he has for his world. A true watchman and visionary is more interested in seeing the work done, even if it’s by someone else, than trying to get credit for their own role.
