1. This post by Tim Keller, 'The Gospel vs. Moralism.' 
'Every sin is rooted in the inordinate lust for something which comes because we are trusting in that thing rather than in Christ for our righteousness or salvation. We sin because we are looking to some- thing else to give us what only Jesus can give us. Beneath any particular sin is the general sin of rejecting Christ’s salvation and attempting our own self-salvation.'
2. This post by Jen Smidt about fearing God. 'The fear of the Lord leads to life and whoever has it rests satisfied; (s)he will not be visited by harm.'  Proverbs 19:23

Interesting quote. I like it.
I think I look for comfort in things when I should find it in God
