I’m an equal-opportunity obsessive.

I am so inappropriately obsessive, that there is hardly any distinction between saving thousands and saving pennies, on a purchase.  I’m an equal-opportunity obsessive.  Embarrassing, because all my life I’ve imagined myself a reasonable, sane person, not the kind of fool who would spend as much time on a ten-dollar purchase, as a ten-thousand-dollar purchase.   Actually, I think I give much-better advice than what I end up doing myself.

But.  Here’s a little secret.  It’s impossible to be inappropriately obsessive, unless one is confident-he-knows-what’s-best, wise in his own eyes, leaning on his own understanding — the fruit of our ancestors’ eating of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Bad, and the resulting Curse, so that ever since, created-dependents have been living miserable lives as independents, while living in denial of our misery.

— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, not a practicer of what he preaches — a great example of a bad example, always needing conviction of the sin of independence so that Jesus is freshly ENOUGH for him, so he’s experiencing the peace Jesus provides to freshly-convicted sinners
