Sticking-Plaster Morality

How much of our ‘godly’ behaviour is actually  self-interest with a lick of paint?

Frugality for example. At the local discount store I pick up 12 loo rolls for the price of six.  I think I’m rejecting consumerism but I’ve bought into the same lies – only  for slightly less money.   I feel wonderfully smug at poking one in the eye to foul Mammon .  But er –  I’m still buying Andrex. I feel like a radical, but  I’m still a slave.

Despite the hope of the gospel, too often my life is no different to that of the unbeliever. I’m just cheap with it.
