FAME:the desire to be known, liked, admired, and famous
Micro-cravings:small inner desires that signal a pursuit for more
There is nothing innately wrong or sinful about being famous.
The PURSUIT of fame can be very dangerous to your faith and your walk with God.
“I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer.” - Jim Carrey
How did John the Baptist respond to his moment of fame?
Steps to get more of Him and less of me:
1) Find our identity and VALUE in Christ.
Steps to get more of Him and less of me:
2) Seek God's APPROVAL over others.
Acts of the Apostles 4:19-20 NLT

Steps to get more of Him and less of me:
3) Surrender your WILL to His plan.
Steps to get more of Him and less of me:
4) Love the YOU God is forming.
PRAYER: Lord, hear the prayers that are radiating out of my heart today. Hear me as I pray from the depths of my soul today. Help me live more for you and less for me. Show me the micro-cravings of my life that I am presently unaware of – but that are causing me unknown distance between me and you. More of you God. Less of me. May it be so. I long for you. I need you.
Personal reflection this week ...
> What micro-cravings of fame & popularity do you struggle with?

> This week, spend less time on various social media outlets (Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, Youtube, and others) and spend more time interacting interpersonally
