Behind the Scenes

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

When we think about television programs, our first thought often is about the “stars”—the people we see on the screen. Some also may think about directors, producers, and writers.

But in many ways the most important people in the process are the “showrunners.” These are the people who handle the daily operations of a television series. They are responsible to deliver programs on time and within budget limits.

Showrunners face constant stress and must play multiple roles. They must be so creative and flexible that they can assist with scripts and casting, but also have the management skills to stay on top of a complex production schedule. They also must be diplomats, interfacing with demanding network executives.

The Bible describes how, in many ways, the most important people in the Kingdom of God are those who don’t get the attention. They work behind the scenes rather than in the public eye.

The Bible tells us that every position is important, even those “we deem less honorable” (1 Corinthians 12:23-24). And Jesus said those who work behind the scenes will get the same reward as those who get the attention.

As followers of Christ, we are to serve in whatever position He has called us to fulfill. We are to be selfless, with the attitude of a servant, following wherever He leads. Jesus said, “He who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it” (vs. 38-39).

In your life, seek to be faithful with the resources God has given you. Serve Him in everything you do, whether people see your efforts or not.
