I’m either a rejecter or an enjoyer.

There is no middle ground in my life.  When I’m DumbSheepDave, I’m an enjoyer of others, myself, just a we are, and an enjoyer of Jesus, and His genius plan for everyone, just as it is.  The sovereignty of Jesus is overwhelming.  I ooze with patience.  Blissful.

When I’m ShepherdDave, I’m looking for perfection in others and myself, and when I don’t see perfection, I’m a rejecter — of others, myself, and what’s worse, I’m a rejecter of Jesus – I sit in judgment of Him and His plan, and the way He’s made me and others, and I don’t always like His plan for me and others.  Easily irritated, always impatient.  Agendafied.  Especially driving, hating long lines of traffic, slow drivers talking on their cell phones, long traffic signals, irritated with myself for choosing the slower route.  Claiming to believe in the sovereignty of Jesus, but acting like it’s UP TO ME, which is really believing in the sovereignty of ME.

–ShepherdDave, who needs fresh conviction of the sin of independence/confidence-he-knows-what’s-best, so he might momentarily be DumbSheepDave, blissfully enjoying everyone and everything just as it is, so the nonbelievers and believers around him might experience the other-worldly humility and other-worldly love of 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
