The Misconception of Fame
Today we see so many people of fame in the headlines. I say to myself that people that have become so famous or well known to the public eye. Their fame cause them to live as though they are not human and can't make mistakes. Fame will tell you that you are so good no one are nothing can touch you. Fame will bring you up so high so it can watch you fall.
Fame will take you down the road of disappointment. Fame will make you forget who you really are it will strip you of your true self if you just keep your eyes on the goal that it has set before you.
I have seen people that have had the walk of fame and a life that was untouched by the dross.That's only because they stayed true to themselves.Fame will hate you for being true to yourself.You wont get fame credits but that's OK . Because the reward will be much greater at the end.
By not putting yourself and your family first you start loosing grip.People lives start to spirl out of control.Fame will take your sleep and give you sleeping pills.Fame will take your family and give you the Gold of Goals. Fame will buy your life just as long as you dance to it's music.Fame will take your joy and exchange it for fun for a moment. Fame will only give you a piece of cake in exchange for your peace of mind.
It is very important that if you ever in your life find yourself at the doorway of fame and when you step through weigh the true virtue of your life and the weight of fame and see what you are willing to exchange.Because all temptation will be there also to alter the person you come as.Fame will constantly ask you who you are as you walk that walk. And if you don't know who you are and what is most important in life.Fame has a suit for you; Well the one it wants you to wear.
So do we know when to say No to fame are do we stay there until we have nothing to give back to ourselves? We as people have to know when enough is enough.And that fame can only take you so high before the fall. In the bible it is called the pride of life. The bible also said" What profit is it to man to gain the whole world and lose his soul.
For what is a mans profited,if he shall gain the whole world,and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in Exchange for his soul?
So after fame show you the gain in which you sell yourself for. You began to walk with the pride of life and all that comes with it. The love of it all strips us.Than your heavenly treasure is no more. God is put to the side and you lose what he made you to become.
Pride of this life
It looks so good but if you don't handle it right it is very costly.The bible states where it stands with God.
1 John 2:16
For all that is in the world,the lust of the flesh,and the lust of the eyes,and the pride of life,is not of the Father,but is of the world.
If for any reason we think that the pride of life will cover our fall; It wont Fame will uncover you and walk away. Fame will point a finger at you and say to the world " look at how unclean you are. After it has gotten what it wanted.Don't be misinformed it can happen in the Church world as well.
But most of all you must remember that God is forgiving and you are always in his hand.God never walks away from us.My Heavenly Father is greater than Fame.
