Sadly we are all looked at and judged according to who we know and who we are to people. Many people don’t get opportunities because other people don’t consider them as “somebody.” They may be as talented or even more talented, but if they’re not well known they are considered a “nobody.” People miss out on what great individuals have to offer when they categorize individuals this way. I think this is one of the worst things people can do to one another and it’s a very shallow way of thinking.
People of the world make it all about who they know. They want to be associated with well known people. They gravitate to people they believe are well known. Why? I believe it’s because of what individual’s feel about self. They think they need to be associated with someone with who is well known for their own recognition or just to say they know the person. It’s sad! A lot of people invest a lot of time in others, but none in Jesus or developing self. They focus on what man says, does, and thinks.
When individuals like people according to their statuses it’s how people end up with big heads thinking they are better than others. It’s how people end up high on man made pedal stools. Many begin to act as if they know everything, simply because of the pedal stools they’ve been put on. Some become gods to the people following them. None of it impresses or pleases God the Father.
No title or status changes what’s inside. It’s why we continuously see people of status from all walks of life doing stupid stuff. Many folks busy trying to rub elbows with individuals because of their statuses or titles when many of those individuals have as many or more issues than they do. Facts!!!
In the sight of man as long as they consider you to be “somebody” they love you. You can say anything or do anything and people will eat it up. Yet another person who isn’t considered as “somebody” can say or do say the exact same thing and people will have nothing to say. I think it’s very ridiculous!
God doesn’t look at us this way, He has no respect of persons. With Him there’s only one big happy family. We are all His Children, but we individually choose whether to be Children of God. He allots us this choice! All the other titles the world wants to give people means absolutely NOTHING to Jesus the Son and God the Father! We may have favor for something, it doesn’t mean God favors you over anyone else. He does not! He doesn’t look at us this way! In Him there’s no big I’s and little u’s!
People want validation from man. People want to feel as if they’re a part of something when they associate themselves with known people. In my opinion those who feel this way need to work on self. Stop being shallow minded and accept people for who they are, period! Stop looking at statuses and positions; choosing to like a person according to what they are considered to be to the world.
When we die none of what is gained here on earth will matter. None of it will matter when we leave this life. If you haven’t served the Master by living according to his Word, nothing else will matter. People keep on living as if they will never die. People are too busy trying to gain man’s approval and validation, yet they aren’t concerned with living pleasing in the sight of God!
Don’t worry about man thinking you’re a nobody, you are somebody to God. He loves you! Those same people the world deems “somebody” will someday depart this life like everyone else! There’s no bartering, bargaining, or buying your way out of leaving this world. Not one single person has the power to stop it! How well a person is known won’t stop it!
If you continue to be caught up in who man says you are or who man says someone else is; you won’t ever be able to be who God wants you to be! Stop worrying about what man says and focus on pleasing Lord Jesus!! He loves us and doesn’t want any of us to lose our soul’s. The world cares about pleasing the flesh, God cares about spiritual house that our physical houses will someday depart!
