Don’t worry when you are not recognized but strive to be worthy of recognition. (Abraham Lincoln)

Most of us want our “15 minutes of fame,” but that alone is not a worthy ambition. Successful accomplishments deserve honor, but Lincoln’s admonition is really helpful. Whether acknowledged publicly or not, living with integrity and humility will be recognized by the One who is our final judge.

Above all, you must live as citizens of heaven, conducting yourselves in a manner worthy of the Good News about Christ (Philippians 1:27).
