I open Scripture as ShepherdDave,

not DumbSheepDave.  Whyzat?  I hardly know how to go through my day – interact with life, as DumbSheepDave.  So unnatural, other-worldly, unAmerican, unChristian, to be weak, clueless, childlike, dependent, because everyone outside the Church and inside the Church, stresses strength, being knowledgeable/wise, adultlike, independent.  So I feel pressure when I read Scripture, to understand everything perfectly, so I can explain everything to others perfectly.  Great unity among Christians on most of Scripture, but great disunity on the meaning of many areas.  Still, a mature Christian – strong/adultlike/knowledgeable, is expected to have answers.  ShepherdDave.

DumbSheepDave feels no pressure to understand all of Scripture perfectly.  Trusts his ShepherdJesus when he doesn’t understand.  Ahhhh.  Wunnnerful peace being other-worldly.  Though impossible unless the Spirit convicts for the sin of independence/worldliness/pride/confidence.

–DumbSheepDave, trying to give ShepherdDave permission to be weak, clueless, childlike, dependent, so he experiences the bliss of Jesus-dependency/humility, so the pre-believers around him will want a SaviorShepherd too

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
