There are many people in the world who don’t want any attention drawn to themselves…
And, there’s nothing wrong with that.
But, when I’m honest with myself, I sometimes crave attention….Why?
Because I’m a creative…Sometimes creativity crying to be seen, heard, tasted, experienced, enjoyed,… meant to bring inspiration, comfort and evangelize can cause uneasiness and even depression.
Because I’m a minister and disciple… ministry and discipleship are nothing if they aren’t seen…heard…shared.
Even Jesus Himself that we aren’t supposed to hide our light, but share it…
Matthew 5:14-16 (NKJV)
14 (A)“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they (B)light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, (C)that they may see your good works and (D)glorify your Father in heaven.
God wants us to draw attention to the gifts He’s given us with humility and grace…not arrogance and pride.
