Commanding Attention From Others

Words In Season:
Make yourself relevant by noble deeds and men will notice you and give you the attention others are dying to get.
    The King's Scribe 

"Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly unto them; that thy profiting may appear unto all"
      I Timothy 4:15

This is a common denominator among both the The Creator and all His creatures. They all desire one thing. It is called ATTENTION.
God wants it from His creatures and children. That is why He is called a jealous God. And He will go to any length to get your attention and shift it from those smaller idols, even if it will  mean hitting you with a big brick of tribulations to get it, if all thing else fails.
Haman wants attention from Mordecai. Which Mordecai refused to give to The God of his fathers. And that made Haman miserable all day long. So miserable that one day, he felt he has had enough of Mordecai and therefore plotted to make a good riddance of him for good. The plot backfired on his face and we all knew the rest of the story. Let someone read the entire book of Esther in The Bible.
Sincerely, who won't notice this in a crowd of mass transit vehicles?
The inward craving of everyman, no matter how he or she pretends is recognition and attention from others. A longing to be noticed and appreciated. You need not go the way of Haman, in order to gain attention and recognition. Lest you end up in the gallows you dug for others. Nor must you resort to the game of arrogance and pride, boastful vaunting up of yourself, and putting others down to elevate yourself. The boomerang effect of such ungodly habit is better imagined than experienced.
God's motive and reason for wanting attention from us His creation is pure. Really it is a matter claiming His right, yeah what rightfully belongs to Him.

The devil's motive is impure and devious. An impostor of no gender, trying to claim what does not belong to him. Trying to reap where he has not sown. The devil wants it because he is both jealous and proud. So he roars like a lion just to get it. Bravados and empty threats are part of his game plans, all to get the attention he needs but doesn't deserve. All you need do is to ignore him. And that hurts and stings him deeper and bitter than a bee sting.
To gain men's attention and be noticed the proper way, all you need is do is these two things, and heaven will recognise you and so the earth.
1. Mortify that craving for attention, recognition and seeking to be noticed by being humble and quieter wherever you find yourself. Even if you know everything(which I don't believe any mortal is capable of anyway), pretend as if you know nothing and listen to others.
Before honour is humility, as it is written.
2. Begin in your own little way to make your contributions, add value and make positive impacts in deeds and words, seasoned with sound judgement and wisdom.
And do it with a pure motive of not to be seen of men, but as unto God. These will begin to speak loudly for you and showcase your relevance. Then men will begin to notice you without you necessarily drawing attention to yourself.
Any recognition and attention garnered from these, have a stamp of God's approval, even of men's. They are durable, long lasting and can even outlast you.
All said and done, above all things God need your attention. All these years, He has been speaking to you, wanting you turn to Him, even return to Him.
Today if you hear His voice, harden not your heart. Come to God through Christ Jesus, and He will save you to the uttermost.
