Love one another as Jesus has loved us.

Americans are infatuated with celebrities— athletes, musicians, actors, politicians, and prince-harry-cover-300even pastors. Anyone who garners media attention becomes the subject of our conversations… our relational expert… our financial consultant… our moral standard.

Like moths drawn to a flame, celebrity fixation has created an American culture where image is everything. However, when someone’s identity is built upon image rather than authenticity it eventually crashes and burns. And when it does, the fallout is devastating. Not only for the celebrity but also the followers.

 

What would happen if each of us were to treat every person we meet as a celebrity? A “celebrity” whose life story is interesting. A “celebrity” for whom respect and honor is a given. A celebrity who is anything but ordinary or average.

What would happen? Fewer tabloid magazines sold, and more “celebrities” living lives of significance.

 

Thanks for visiting! Feel free to like and share “my home” with your friends.

    Love this quote, “…when someone’s identity is built upon image rather than authenticity it eventually crashes and burns.” Image versus authenticity. Powerful.

      Thanks Kim! Speaking from personal experience, it’s difficult and tiring being on a stage 24-7.

Be a VOICE shouting in the darkness. Lets love others!
