Everybody wants to make it.
Everybody wants to be known. Everybody wants their life’s work to matter.
I’m sure you didn’t wake up today saying, “I hope nobody ever hears about the work I do. I pray that the projects I invest my life in make zero difference and I fade into oblivion. That’s the good life!”
Sure, we criticize those in fame’s spotlight, but if you were handed millions of adoring fans you wouldn’t complain. The problem with fame isn’t fame itself but what we choose focus on. It’s a much better servant than it is a master.
We need to stop focusing on fame and seek faithfulness instead. We should seek to be faithful to something greater than our own fame.
