The Sin of Self Pity (Oswald Chambers)

"No sin is worse than the sin of self-pity, because it removes God form the throne of our lives, replacing Him with our own self-interests.  It causes us to open our mouths only to complain, and we simply become spiritual sponges-- always absorbing, never giving, and never being satisfied..."
I read this today in My Utmost For His Highest.  What do you think?  I'd rather not rate sin on a scale from bad to worse, but you get Chamber's point.  Perhaps this is the disease that plagues modern Christianity: self-pity leading to spiritual sponges.  I catch it in my own life far too often...
