5Then a voice came from the throne, saying:
"Praise our God,
all you his servants,
you who fear him,
both small and great!"
No matter what our status is on this earth, in the end, our purpose is to praise God. We should never be haughty and snobbish in this life; we should never think that we're better than anyone. This is a bad attitude. Likewise, we should never be ashamed of being a peon, either. There will always be people above us. We need to accept their leadership; however, God is the King of kings and Lord of Lords; He is the One whom we should worship and focus all our attention.
Status is such a strange concept. I get frustrated sometimes with people who think they're better than me and put me down. Politics are embedded in every sect of life...but in the end, it means nothing. All of it, titles and roles, and the like will all fade. What matters in this life is how we treat others. We serve. We love. We forgive. We need to live our lives not with a status mentality but with a kind and pure attitude.
