Our world has become infatuated with celebrities. I don’t know why really but I’ve never been a fan of man. I admire a person’s gift but never do I worship a human or spend my last dime to invest in something they’ve produced. Many people today put a celebrity before God. They’ll spend everything in their account to go to a concert but won’t put a good offering in the plate at Church.
People need a hero. But why? What makes you hold your breath until your favorite artist’s next release? What makes you curse anyone out that speaks their mind against the celebrity you adore? What makes you buy into and believe anything and everything your favorite celebrity releases?
Do you not feel worthy of your own light? Do they give you hope? Have they helped you pay a bill? Have they inspired you to create something of your own? Will they go to bat for you when you need them to? If you see them on the street will they stop and take the time to talk with you? Make sure that you can answer yes to at least one of those questions. It’s OK to admire someone but don’t worship them.
I see a lot of “stans,” “fans,” and “team this and team that.” Let me ask you; who’s your fan? Who’s your stan? Who’s on your team? What will you create that can change lives or the world?
If you put a human on a pedestal then all they can do is look down on you. If you treat a human like a celebrity then they will treat you like a fan. If you treat a human like a star then all they will do is shine on you. God didn’t make celebrities, we did.
Worship God, not man. Fight for those that will fight for you. Humans were not meant to be gods, we are mere mortals. That is why whenever we put a human in a godlike position it kills them before they are ready to go. Humans aren’t meant to be worshiped, only God is.
Worship the creator, not the creature.
