I worship efficiency.

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.

ask Jesus to grow you as the chief confessor in the home, not the chief accuser, or the chief expert on all things Christian.  If you unwittingly give them the impression that you’ve got this Christia
