The drug of self-pity...

I ran across a profound quote on self-pit today.

“Feeling sorry for yourself is one of the strongest, most addictive narcotics known to man. It feels so good to feel so bad. Self-pity arises so easily, seems so plausible, and proves so hard to shake off.”
~David Powlison

I found this quote on the website of Jollyblogger, a man who knows about self-pity as one fighting for his life against cancer. I know the temptation of this drug, and my bet is that you do, too, Gentle Reader. May we all turn to God in this temptation, and focus on His grace being sufficient for us!
