I wanna feel vastly superior to others.

But I know it’s wrong, so I evidently suppress this, live in denial of how competitive I am, and convince myself that I’m more humble than I am.  I’m great at spotting pride in others, but not so good spotting it in me.  Janet says, “You spot it, you got it.”  So I must be way-more prideful than I realize.  I love thinking of myself as a humble man in a proud world, outside the Church, and inside the Church.  Whyzat?  Cuz I feel superior to those who are pride-filled but blind to it.  I love feeling superior.  Whyzat?  I can only conclude that deep down, I must feel painfully inferior, painfully worthless.  But I don’t consider myself inferior or worthless.   So I must unconsciously suppress these feelings, and carry on, noticing the pride in others, while blind to my own pride.

Wonder what the pre-believers around me would think, if they saw a genuinely-humble Dave, an uncompetitive Dave, an undefensive Dave, a Dave not so self-absorbed, a peaceful Dave?  Maybe they would be wowed by a Jesus who could change a proud, self-absorbed believer, into a humble believer.  Maybe they would have a renewed interest in Jesus.

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
