I LOVE being wise

in my own eyes, leaning on my own understanding, LOVE giving advice, LOVE ministry, LOVE pointing others to Jesus.  Independency/pride is so effortless, so natural. I dunno how to live another way.  Thumbs up or down on everything I see.  Looking for what’s commendable, and not.  What’s thankable, and not.  Obsessive critic of every sermon I hear, every news story, Facebook post, movie, whatever.  I don’t know how to NOT sit in judgment, not opine.  Dunno how to ENJOY everyone, just as we are, and everything I see or hear, just as it is.  I KNOW what’s enjoyable and what’s not.  I KNOW what it’s like to enjoy my own worthiness.

—ShepherdDave, needing rescue from Above — fresh conviction of the sin of independence/confidence-he-knows-what’s-best, so he might momentarily be DumbSheepDave, enjoying the bliss of cluelessness, childlikeness, dependency on his ShepherdJesus, so the nonbelievers around him might experience the other-worldly humility and other-worldly love of Jesus
