Prosperity

From The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis:

“Prosperity knits a man to the World. He feels that he is ‘finding his place in it,’ while really it is finding its place in him. His increasing reputation, his widening circle of acquaintances, his sense of importance, the growing pressure of absorbing and agreeable work, build up in him a sense of being really at home in earth.”

Luke 16:15

“What is highly valued among men is detestable in God’s sight.”
