The Puritans were men of the Spirit; lovers of the Lord, keepers of his law, and self-squanderers in his service, which are in every age the three main elements of the truly Spirit-filled life.

Self-squanderers ... it seems that most "self" words describing me would be far less complimentary. I like it; self-squanderer.
