Frugality is next to godliness,

but only for spendthrifts. For us frugal types, paying LIST PRICE is next to godliness — what repentance looks like for us, because we get so much artificial LIFE — fake worthiness, human-wisdom-worthiness, from a good deal, instead of being content with Jesus and His imputed worthiness. Excruciatingly painful for us frugal types to pay list price, or even average price. Pride, not humility. Obsessing over brilliant purchasing decisions.

I’m not saying frugal types are sinning if we don’t pay list price. I’m saying when the Spirit convicts us of our bargain idolatry, CONFESS. Rather than imagining we’re as wonderful as our human-wisdom would have us believe.

​– Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, king of frugality, except when freshly convicted of being dissatisfied with Jesus
