Whose Attention Are You After?
Who's watching you? Who are you watching? Whose attention are you after? Really.
Whose attention do you crave?
Too many of us crave the attention of the wrong crowd.
Are you chasing the attention and approval of friends, or peers, or those who have "arrived" already? Are you seeking the attention of "celebrities" in your circle? Would it make your day to be noticed by someone? Your boss? The CEO? The Senior Pastor? Founder? That artist or musician? If a certain someone commented on your Instagram pic or followed you on Twitter, would that totally make your day and immediately change your attitude?
Or are you content with the attention of your Heavenly Father?
Leaders must be cautious of chasing after the things of this world. Chasing after the attention of others, jumping in on the latest fad, saying yes because of who you are saying yes to, and seeking the approval of the crowd is not acceptable.
Romans 12: 2 warns us against this: "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."
Our attention and focus should be on things that are Eternal, and we should crave the attention of God, not man.
Don't get caught up in trying to be "noticed by man." Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. Seek the attention and approval of One.
