Fame and Fortune
To be known by millions…to have millions!
Sounds exactly like the recipe for a good life.
At first glance, fame and fortune seem the perfect combination to guarantee a good life. You‘d have the money to possess your every desire and the praise of those around you to fill the need for meaning and legacy.
But you need only look at the life and writings of the world’s richest man to discover that all is not as it seems.
Thousands of years ago, King Solomon wrote:
But as I looked at everything I had worked so hard to accomplish, it was all so meaningless—like chasing the wind. There was nothing really worthwhile anywhere.
This man ruled his land for forty years.
His fortune was worth billions.
But he still searched for more.
How would you answer the question that Jesus asks comparing the life God offers to Solomon’s riches?
“…what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul?”
The life of joy and fulfillment that God offers is not dependent on fame or even fortune. Listen to how the kingdom of God is defined:
For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. (Romans 14:17)
The truth is there are not enough people in the world shouting your name to fill your heart. There are not enough zeros in your net worth to give you a true sense of value.
True purpose, genuine peace and real meaning in life are found in a relationship with God. Learn more here about how you can experience an abundant life.
