I deserve BETTER.

I’m not a contented follower of Jesus.  I feel ENTITLED to better than what I have, physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially, relationally, vocationally, and for SURE, automotively.  I’m like Oliver Twist in the orphanage — I want MORE.  Jesus is not ENOUGH for me.  I want MORE.  I want BETTER.  I DESERVE better.  I feel ENTITLED to better.  Or so my flesh is convinced.  I’m not a humble man.  I’m not an enjoyer of others just as they are.  I’m their critic, judge, looking for ways to feel superior to them.  I LOVE people watching, because I discover fresh, new ways to feel SUPERIOR to other humans.  Ummm.  My flesh DELIGHTS in feeling superior.
