Saints, not celebrities

"The day will not belong to the celebrities, but to the saints."

The quote above is from our pastor's sermon this morning. He was speaking from 2 Corinthians 4, and passionately advocated a life of servanthood rather than one seeking prestige: that it is so much more important to see what is on the inside, rather than the outside (alluding to Samuel's search for a new King of Israel to succeed Saul), and being directed by God to David, who was in no way what Samuel thought the next King would look like!

I hope that I'm able to live this out to some extent, and allow this aspiration to be part of the way I serve as a councillor.
