In describing how those whom the world calls important, and whose influence in deciding business matters, or even world affairs, is considered weighty, here is what God has to say about this:

Men are only a vapor, exalted men an illusion. On a balance scale, they go up; together, they weigh less than a vapor.   Psalm 62:9

Did you get it? You put them on one side of a scale and instead of weighing it down, the balance goes UP. They weigh nothing—or less—in God’s sight! So, why should Christians be concerned about sidling up next to them? They are as weightless as you or I!
