Luke 16:15 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.In the context Jesus showed that men valued money, success in business, building your self worth while His values were totally different. He valued spiritual things while they valued material things. God hates it when we are so concerned about temporary value when the eternal should be our goal. We think that it is more important that men see us as successful than God seeing us that way. We get very confused. We have wrong values and wrong goals. Often when someone decides to put Jesus first totally, to go and serve Him even his spiritual family will stand in opposition. They want their child to serve God but remind their child that they must first take care of themselves before taking care of the things of God. Can you see how we have allowed the world to corrupt our values? We have become so money focused that we are doing the very thing that God hates!
