Since I am going to be swamped today, I thought I'd get some filler in here from some pastor in Minnesota:

t is profoundly wrong to turn the cross into a proof that self-esteem is the root of mental health. If I stand before the love of God and do not feel a healthy, satisfying, freeing joy unless I turn that love into an echo of my self-esteem, then I am like a man who stands before the Grand Canyon and feels no satisfying wonder until he translates the canyon into a case for his own significance. That is not the presence of mental health, but bondage to self.
Think about that today: the cross is not a mental health program meant to build us up in our own eyes.

Read the rest. This definition of joy and worthiness is one we all need to consider.
