Taivos Olam Hazeh

ועמך לא חפצתי בארץ

And when I am with You, I do not desire anything on earth. (Tehillim 73:25)

And when I do desire and partake of things in this world, do I do so in a way in which I still remember You, Hashem?

Taking the King's crown

לא לנו ה' לא לנו כי לשמך תן כבוד

Not for our sake, Hashem, not for our sake, but for Your Name's sake give honor. (Tehillim 115:1)

My mouth recites these words, but to what extent am I speaking the truth in my heart? As much as I would like to deny it, am I not seeking kavod (honor) on a daily basis and defending against every affront to my kavod?

When will I realize that all the kavod in the world belongs to Hashem? When will I finally realize that when I insist on my kavod instead of remaining silent, I am thereby decreasing Hashem's kavod in the world.
