Just beyond these thoughts, I looked up into a clear blue sky etched with a few white powdery clouds and watched as a shiny, silver jet soared overhead. As I gazed upon the heavens, I realized that the person piloting that jet probably held one of the highest positions on earth and yet he was unknown. He possessed the skill, knowledge and ability to steer that huge metal bird from shore to shore if need be, and was accountable for many lives. And yet, he performed this amazing feat, not for fame, but for the simple love of flying. God gave the pilot and many other unsung heroes, the desire to do what they do because He wired them that way. Given this fact, we should rejoice because we all possess individual desires and abilities. It’s up to us to decide how we use these gifts.
If we use our talent only for the hope of fame, we must remember that fame is temporary and fleeting; a title only for today. We can hustle hard work to achieve but in the end, we will pass from this life to the next. Fame is something that comes and goes because no one is destined to live on earth forever.
Every person that acquires fame rises and falls—all except one. Jesus Christ defeated death and still lives today. The good news is, so can we! If we believe in God and place our faith in Him, our future is secure. Fame walks hand in hand with life on earth because it is temporary. But, our home—our real home is in heaven and it is eternal. Think about that.
As the Scriptures say, “People are like grass;
their beauty is like a flower in the field.
The grass withers and the flower fades.
But the word of the Lord remains forever. 1 Peter 1:24-25(NLT)
