There are some who contrive godliness as a means to earn money. There are others who think of it as a means of earning honor or respect or praise of men. Still others pursue it with the intention of accruing fame. All such pursuit is ungodly at heart and, therefore, detestable before God.
True godliness is accompanied by true contentment. And, it has great gain because it is the true kind of godliness that brings true results. The others are all fake.
