Heaven's Entrance Examination

I think a lot of religious people think that getting to heaven involves getting the correct answers on a quiz that looks something like this:

1) Question: "Who is your Savior?" Answer: "Jesus".
2) Question: "Is Jesus God's Son?" Answer: "Yes."
3) Question: "Do you believe in the Trinity?" Answer: "Yes."
4) Question: "Who died for your sins?": Answer: "Jesus."

If you answer the questions on this quiz correctly, congratulations - you won't burn in hell for eternity! Nothing else really matters apart from scoring 100% on this entrance examination. Those who don't are hopeless. Those who do are rewarded with eternal health, peace and joy.

There's one problem. We may be impressed with our A+ scores, but apparently God isn't. As James 2:19 says, "You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that--and shudder." '

In your opinion, what does God care most about?
