Worthiness Beyond Celebrity

There is much emphasis on notoriety and fame in our society. The media keeps giving us the message: What counts is to be known, praised, and admired, especially in limelight perceived career paths. Real greatness is often hidden and unobtrusive. We get the notion we are not worthy without public acknowledgment. We must have strong self-confidence in our talents combined with deep humility. Some of the greatest works have been created by people who had no need for the limelight. They may be celebrated, but more importantly knew that what they were doing was fulfilling their call.


  1. How I wish all men would be willing to do the work that Absalom was willing to do in II Samuel 15:1-3, but not for the recognition of men, position, power over others, applause of men, glory of man, fame, fortune, money, or mammon, but rather that it might be well with them and that they might get to know God. (Jer 22:16)

  2. Some men who have been in some position of power or leadership have tended their garden for their own purposes that are without God.
    They enjoyed the limelight, and caused foolishness to blossom in the land. They loved to use others gaining their favor through flattery, bribery, and deception. Becoming drunken with power, they developed a love for force.
