It’s Not about You
People are always trying to make a name for themselves. We are always so concerned with our reputations and how other people see and react to us. This is an example of the sin of pride and a form of idolatry—as we are seeking to attain something other than God. If we place ourselves in the center of our lives, as if everything, and everyone revolves around us, then God is not in the place of honor in our lives. Living in such a way is destructive to our relationship with God and with each other.
