“Sin altered every thought, desire, word, and deed. It created a world of double-mindedness and mixed motives, self-worship and self-absorbtion. People desired to be served, but they hated serving. They craved control and nutured delusions of self-sufficiency. They forgot their Creator, but worshipped his creation. Rather than loving people and using things to express it, people loved things and used people to get them.”

-Paul David Tripp, Instruments In The Redeemer’s Hands, p.2
