Where you excel,

is the area of your greatest idolatry — that which brings you artificial LIFE, that which causes you to be UNsatisfied with Jesus and His imputed excellence. This is the area where you are the most failure-avoidant, defensive, intense, agendafied, where your joy and peace are most circumstance-dependent, making you a difficult person to live with, work with. People around you need to give you lots of grace, and these people tend to become unusually gracious over time. The intensity of your idolatry is used by Jesus to retrain THEM in graciousness. Or they can’t take it anymore, and leave.

— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, embarrassed to admit he’s been married for 57 years to a lady Jesus has been growing unusually gracious over years of living with DAVE
