Christ is not your butler

How often do I unintentionally practice the following?

You love Christ. You treasure him supremely. You have tasted and seen the all-satisfying glory of Christ. Christ is not your butler.And prayers are not your bell-ringing for him to bring you what you want.

He is what you want. And you want him exalted, honored, glorified in everything. Listen as people pray. You will find out what they treasure most of all. (Desiring God)

Woe is me for treasuring the things I am brought more than the Bringer of those things.
