Am obsessive about the shortest-quickest route, the shortest-quickest lane, getting things done in the shortest-quickest way. Why? Good stewardship is one reason. But there’s also a dark side, sinful side, idolatrous side, to my motivation for efficiency. I feel worthy when I’m efficient, and if you get in the way of my efficiency, you’ll not find a humble, gentle, patient man, at least not on the inside, though frequently on the outside, because I want others to believe, and I want to believe myself, that I’m a good Christian. Whyzat? Because I wanna feel good about myself, my performance/reputation. Whyzat? Because the imputed worthiness of Jesus means nothing to me when I’m worshiping efficiency, obsessing over efficiency, over my performance/reputation. Circumstance-dependent for my joy and peace. Jesus makes no practical difference in my life. ShepherdDave.
