2020 Christian Testimony Video | “Days of Seeking Fame and Gain”
665 |June 26, 2020
Days Pursuing Fame and Fortune is the testimony of a Christian experiencing God’s judgment and chastisement. Due to the protagonist’s desire to seek fame and status while fulfilling his duty, when he sees that Brother Li is selected to be team leader instead of himself, he feels disgruntled, and begins to secretly vie with him. He even schemes to exclude him so that he can get his own chance to show off, and haughtily scolds his other brothers and sisters. This makes them feel constrained, and does them harm; the work of the church is disrupted as a result, and he himself suffers. Not until he experiences the judgment and chastisement of God’s words does he finally gain some understanding of his own corrupt disposition. He realizes the essence and consequences of seeking status and prestige, and only then does he finally begin to awaken and feel remorse. He no longer wishes to pursue these things, and begins to focus instead on practicing the truth and satisfying God. Ultimately, he achieves a sense of peace and stability that he has never felt before.
