It just feels WRONG,

to not know what to do.  Dependency, feels WRONG.  Adultlike feels normal, right, proper, responsible.  Childlike, dependent, clueless, feels WRONG.  In the right-side-up kingdom of this world.

But in the Upside-down Kingdom of Jesus, childlike/dependent/lowly/clueless-about-what’s-best is the core value.  Sadly, it’s impossible to be Jesus-dependent/humble.  Unless the Spirit freshly convicts me of my independence, confidence-I-know-what’s-best.  And it doesn’t last long.  Because of the world, flesh, devil, luring me back to independence, confidence-I-know-what’s-best.  Excellence, high achievement, sports success, parenting success, financial success, ministry success, idolatry, insanity, psychopathy, obsessiveness, are each impossible, without confidence-I-know-what’s-best.  Adam and Eve got what they wanted.  Nonbelievers AND believers have been suffering ever since, with the curse of independence/confidence-I-know-what’s-best.

–ShepherdDave, who LOVES feeling confident, strong, superior, a somebody, needing fresh conviction of the sin of being dissatisfied with Jesus and His imputed somebodiness, so he might momentarily be DumbSheepDave, enjoying the bliss of Jesus-dependency/humility/cluelessness, so the pre-believers 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
