“Fame’s a Pedestal of Expectations” Note by me.

–Originally just a comment; shared here as a note–

Fame’s a pedestal of expectations that can’t be met by the famous for they are but our fellow sinners, flawed, imperfect, broken, and sadly too many of the famous live in denial of this and let fame get to their head, clouding their judgment, leading them down darker and darker roads in life.

If they can’t admit they’re sinful, flawed, imperfect, broken, then their life (or existence) is based on denial of a very important truth that can pave the way to right road, to look beyond imperfect self to something beyond self, to get a glimpse of that transcendental reality that is God.

God is that too-often ignored Creator of all things who made every individual, calls each to embrace Him and have eyes opened to a reality that they’ve been blind to; to answer a call the world can never give; to love without pretending; to be set free from the easily-besetting sin; to be put on a road that has to do with the eternal instead of temporal; to truly live and be all they can be in the grace and strength of the God who created them.
