A.W. Tozer. The Pursuit of God. Page 103.
…the world of fallen men does not honor God. Millions call themselves by His Name, it is true, and pay some token respect to Him, but a simple test will show how little He is really honored among them. Let the average man be put to the proof on the question of who is above, and his true position will be exposed. Let him be forced into making a choice between God and money, between God and men, between God and personal ambition, God and self, God and human love, and God will take second place every time. Those other things will be exalted above. However the man may protest, the proof is in the choices he makes day after day throughout his life.

Every night and every day
You hold on tight or you drift away
And you’re left to live with the choices you make
Character doesn’t happen by chance; it is created by our choices.
