"Burn the timeline"

Dan Edelen has written another outstanding essay on perfectionism and discipleship:
The sad truth in the lives of many Christians today is that striving is what we're all about. We're expending considerable energy attempting to win every race, no matter how small, even if that race has no spiritual significance. We not only want to have a gold star on our Sunday School attendance chart, but we want the rest of the box the gold star came in, even if that means no one else gets one.
The essay is valuable, and the accompanying graphic is priceless.
