Why do I love assessing everyone and everything?

Because it makes me feel worthy when I analyze/critique/judge, which EXPOSES my dissatisfaction with Jesus and His imputed worthiness, wanting some worthiness of my own. Pride. OUCH. Fresh conviction of sin is initially painful, but confession brings momentary LIFE, other-worldly peace, other-worldly contentment. Fresh conviction of sin by the Spirit, is the pearl of great price, worth selling all to get, because it momentarily humbles our proud hearts, producing fresh faith. Little sinners need Jesus only a little, love Jesus only a little, love others only a little. And are happy only a little — when things go our way.

— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, reminded that the nicest, kindest, sweetest thing Jesus ever does for His kids, is to freshly convict of sin, especially the sin of INdependence, making Christians momentarily attractive/compelling to the seculars nearby
