Have you ever tried to draw attention to yourself? Like a child who acts out in order to get attention from their parents, or maybe a teenager who really wants to impress someone, so they act a little crazy or outrageous to get the attention of their crush. Sometimes we see this desire for attention in the church. We want people to recognize us for the ‘spiritual’ things we do like serving, fasting, giving, etc. What we have to remember is everyone has a part to serve in the church. If we have a view that the focus should be on what can be seen, we will only view those who have a public ministry (worship team, teaching, or otherwise being onstage) as being important. God wants our service, no matter what it is, to be for others and the attention that we seek to be from him.
