Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. - Ecclesiastes 12:13 But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love. - Psalm 33:18 It’s very easy to end up going day to day doing things with only yourself in mind.

As a Christian creative, I always have to be reminded of who my audience is when I'm working. Is it to be insta-famous? Is it to get a ton of ego-boosting comments? Is it to make lots of money? Or is it about glorifying God? I've found that chasing for people's approval, compliments, and cash will never be truly fulfilling.

There is always going to be someone better than you out there, and seeing them getting more double taps can lead us to drown in feeling insufficient.  But...
