Sometimes we confuse success with fame. Fame, as the dictionary tells it, is the condition of being known or talked about by many people, especially on account of notable achievements.

We have inadvertently allowed our views of calling and purpose to be shaped by society, and it is difficult to untangle the idea of pleasing and impressing other people.

This girl here, was struggling with this very thing and didn’t know it. My discouragement was rooted here. God is the most gracious truth-teller. His kindness is what leads us to repentance.

“This world won’t be changed by fame-lusters like it will be by faith-livers. This world won’t be changed by the flashy like it will be by the lowly. This world won’t be changed by more selfies like it will be by more self-sacrificing.” — Ann Voskamp

“If I am still trying to please (and impress) others, I am not a servant of Christ.” {Galatians 1:10}
