Beware of the seductive power of fame

"Fame, potentially a usurper of servant-leadership, can be seductive, luring leaders to abandon their beliefs and commitments for the momentary spotlight of public adulation." - Lea E. Williams    

The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold,

    and a man is tested by his praise.

Proverbs 27:21 ESV
