I feel good about myself after I watch a movie.

Whether I like it or not. Whyzat? I think I’m addicted to analyzing, critiquing, judging, and I do that with every movie I watch. Thumbs up, or down. I agree or disagree with the IMDB rating, and by however many points. It’s God-like. Heady thing to sit in judgment over everything and everyone. So when I have fresh worthiness of my own, I’m not as wowed with Jesus and His imputed worthiness. But this does not deliver happiness for me. It just strengthens my addiction to analyzing, critiquing, judging. Terrible prison. The only thing that helps, is being freshly convicted of being dissatisfied with Jesus and His imputed worthiness to me. Ahhh.
