Famous people usually get really big heads and walk around acting like God. That’s why you shouldn’t try to be famous. That’s the message of the Tower of Babel story in Genesis 11.

Philippians 2:3 Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. (Memory Verse)
