Human-achievement promises happiness,

but instead, delivers addiction -- to more achievement. High achievers are highly addicted. Low achievers are ALSO highly addicted to achieving, but are disappointed, feel like failures. Low achievers frequently end up in hobbies where we can become specialist achievers, to feel good about ourselves. Or, develop critical-judgmental spirits toward others, as a strategy to feel good about ourselves. Human-achievement and/or being critical of others, is like a prison -- never leads to happiness, contentment. How much achievement or judgment of others, does it take to satisfy? Just a little bit more.

How can Christians DEAL with the temptation to human achievement or judgment? CONFESS, when aware of it. Ahhh. Jesus came, that we might have LIFE, and have it abundantly. So we might be contagious to the seculars around us.

-- Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, who loves human achievement and judging others, in his less-sane moments
