Contentment is what’s missing

in the life of ShepherdDave. In the Church, only we Christian malcontents are intense, hurried, agendafied. Don’t get in the way of a Christian malcontent. Only we Christian malcontents, are passionate about achievement, excellence, being better, doing better, making a difference in the world. Ambition. Only we Christian malcontents experience fear, frustration, discouragement, boredom. Only we Christian malcontents are confident-we-know-what’s-best. Only we Christian malcontents are dissatisfied with Jesus, His imputed worthiness, His genius plan for our lives, and others’ lives – we want some worthiness of our own. We Christian malcontents are not curious/expectant to see what He does NEXT, in us others, circumstances – we’re make-it-happen people. Only we Christian malcontents compare ourselves to others, are secretly competitive, are clear-sighted about the weaknesses/sins of others, mostly blind to our own. Only we Christian malcontents are circumstance-dependent for our joy and peace. Only we Christian malcontents are gifted at appearing humble, patient, meek, when we are secretly agendafied and irritated when things don’t go our way, because only we Christian malcontents are eaten up with our reputation, image.

–ShepherdDave, chief of malcontents, except when he’s been freshly convicted of his confidence-he-knows-what’s-best, so he’s momentarily DumbSheepDave, enjoying everyone and everything just as it is, and the bliss of Jesus-dependency/humility, so the nonbelievers around him might experience Jesus

If you don’t want your kids to be prodigals,

ask Jesus to grow you as the chief confessor in the home, not the chief accuser, or the chief expert on all things Christian.  If you unwittingly give them the impression that you’ve got this Christia
