Hold that Tweet

Just as my ego is in the ascendancy, I come across John Calvin's comment on Psalm 84:10, "I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness": 

'He would rather be cast into a common and unhonored place, provided he were among the people of God, than exalted to the highest rank of honor among unbelievers. A rare example of godliness indeed! Many are to be found who desire to occupy a place in the Church, but such is the sway which ambition has over the minds of men, that very few are content to continue among the number of the common and undistinguished class [i.e. zero followers on Twitter]. Almost all are carried away with the frantic desire of rising to distinction and can never think of being at ease until they have attained to some station of eminence."  

I feel affirmed again.
