The Ultimate Awards Ceremony

Why Academy recognition pales in comparison

Grammys and Oscars,
Emmys and such
are little gold trophies that say
“It’s glitz and it’s glamour
that matter the most.
That’s the currency Hollywood pays.

But standing on stage
or recording a song
or landing a sought-after part
Means little in life
when it’s all said and done.
What’s important is what’s in your heart.

The bucks may be big
and the fame may be fast.
But what fun is playing a role?
Your purpose on earth
is to be who YOU are
and with Christ to live life to the full.

While “the envelope please”
will one day be heard
when God reads aloud who has won,
it will not require
that you be a star,
just that you have accepted His Son.
