Success is very dangerous,

including ministry success, parenting success, because it’s addictive.  Success ain’ta bad thing, but it’s very dangerous.  It strokes us in wanting more.  And more.  Never satisfied.  Bottomless pit of need in the ambitious, hard-worker.  And homemaker.  And the worst part, is the unrelenting pressure 24/7.  Self-imposed pressure.  Unrecognized pressure.  It’s such a part of one’s life, it’s invisible.  Circumstance-dependent for joy and peace.  A picture of addiction to one’s own worthiness.  Terrible, horrible, no-good, very-bad way to live.  Addiction prison.
