We have seen the ministry of men/women and watched men/women get glory. This is a fading glory, it does not last. Yet men/women still pursue the fading glory. The desire to be seen, heard, acknowledged, honored, is prevalent in many cultures around the world. The praise of people is palatable in many places, from sports and politics to pulpits and boardrooms. All seeking to be the one who stands in the fading glory even for a moment.
The Bible is good medicine for us to take daily like our vitamins because it keeps us healthy, grounded, alive and free. While others are pursuing a fading glory of clicks, likes, shares, numbers, platforms, microphones and titles, the Bible tells us to pursue the Living God. It directs us to glorify Him, to bless His name, to announce His praise. Trust me blessing the Lord releases more healing to us than the praise of any person could give us.
Psalm 115:1 “Not to us, O LORD, not to us, But to Your name give glory”
