They asked USHER if he believes in JESUS….THIS WAS HIS ANSWERJesus Daily
Ever wonder what keeps Usher grounded? Watch to hear his answer! To him, it’s simple. After all, being a superstar must have its challenges. Since his humble beginnings of singing in the church choir at age six to his participation in local singing competitions around Atlanta, Ga., where he spent a portion of his youth, Usher began working in the business in his early teens. Today, he is a world-renowned singer, songwriter, television personality and actor.
Usher’s big break came when co-founder of LaFace Records, L.A. Reid discovered him at a talent show. He made his first album at age 14, and followed it three years later, with his second album, My Way. Singer Babyface, the other co-founder of LaFace Records, as a producer on the project. It has now sold over 6 million copies in the U.S., meaning it has gone platinum six times over. It was that album that also got the attention of Janet Jackson, who invited Usher to tour with her.
With so much fame so early, how did Usher stay steady in character, strength and faith? Listen to Usher describe it in his own words. He admits it’s important not to believe all the hype. And, he is not afraid to speak out about what – or whom – has kept him centered!
Usher was called into a world bigger than the one he knew by age 14. We don’t know what the future holds for the children around us. We do know that God wants all of us to impact the world and share his love with people – whether we are famous singers or not. God has a plan for each of us. The earlier we can teach our children about God’s love, the better. And, we can learn a lot from Usher’s example.
Dr. Tabor gives three Bible verses to teach children, so they can stay grounded
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. Children need to know that God loves them, and that believing in Jesus is the key to eternal life. It is also the key to life here on earth, as Usher attests to right from the beginning.
Mark 12:30 – Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. God loves us so much he gave his Son. How can we love him back? With all our heart (emotions), soul (our individuality), mind (our thoughts) and strength (our bodies and acts of service). In other words, we love him with everything we are.
Matthew 6:33 – But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. When we put Jesus first in our lives, he takes care of everything else. That doesn’t mean life will always be easy and we will get everything we want, but God knows what is best for us. He promises to be with us in the hard times and the good times. So often we want to put other things first, because we think we need to do so to be successful. True success comes from seeking God first, learning about him, serving others through Him and reading his word, the Bible.
