Sri Krishna said –
Both renunciation of karma and working in devotion lead to liberation. But of the two, karma yoga is better than karma sanyasa.

While both ultimately lead to liberation from the cycle of birth-death, working in devotion is better than renouncing. 

Perhaps, renouncing is for those who have reached certain level in spirituality. But for those caught up in this world, action is always better than renunciation.
