Have you heard it said that some things are over-rated? People going through difficult times will say that eating and sleeping are over-rated, and this is usually understood to be a joke. People in relational difficulties will make similar statements about marriage and family. Paul was expressing the same concept in referring to his credentials and counting them as dung, and counting all things as lost for the sake of knowing me. The term over-rated implies that there is a proper ranking of value, and you understand that some things are more important than others. If you regard me in my proper place it becomes easier to assign everything else its true value.
