What is dear on Earth, is detestable before God. Arrogant fame, selfish ambition, destructive behavior come to mind.

While the world fawns over its winners, the Christians huddle in unseen prayer. The world ridicules, still we read our Bibles.

Then suddenly, what was all-important loses all its importance… when we die. And everything that we gave scant importance becomes suddenly and eternally consequent.

And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God — Luke 16:15 KJV.
