The Bible tells us that we are to take the lowly place, the furthest seat at the wedding so that we can be elevated to our rightful place. We should not get so big headed and think so highly of ourselves that people need to accommodate our ego and pretentious ways.
You are going to have to choose who you are going to please in this life, your flesh or your God. Your flesh will want one thing and God will want another and neither one are willing to compromise. You will need to make the final deciding vote. If the praises of men is what you run after and you want to be spoken well of and seen to be doing good things in front of people, then you have chosen your flesh, and that will be your only reward. However if you want to please God and hear your Heavenly father call you out by name and lift you up to greater heights, you need to place yourself on the back seat and start to get real comfortable there, because God is no respecter of persons. He can raise up one and set down another at any given time. In pleasing God your reward will be great, but your flesh will have to die and that is something that a lot of us Christians are not yet willing to come to terms with. Needless to say you make the decision every day and either look to seek the praises and approval of people or the approval and praises from a great God and King.
The decision is yours, but I recommend that you take the back seat.
