I googled “Famous people born on May 7.” These are the 12 names that came up: Tommy Fury, J Balvin, Jacob Bongiovi, Julia Antonelli, Chad Tepper, Sarah Baska, Rico Nasty, Tahani Anderson, Blake Rivera, Michael Rosen, Chiara Ferragni, and Mr. Beast. (Yes, Mr. Beast.)
I’ve heard of exactly one of them – Tommy Fury (boxer).
So I ask the obvious question. What good is it to be famous if no one has heard of you?
I’m sure these are all wonderful people. Even Mr. Beast. And I’m sure they have all done things that have made them more popular than most. But to be popular among people is to miss the point.
The Bible says, “Our purpose is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our hearts” (1 Thessalonians 2:4).
Now you have your marching orders. Seek the approval of God, not man. And in case you’re wondering, “Mr. Beast” is not his given name.
Recovery Step: Seek the approval of God, not man.
