Jesus is not ENOUGH for me

in my less-sane moments, when my flesh reigns supreme, and I want MORE than what I have in Jesus.  He and His imputed worthiness are UNsatisfying to me.  I wannabe BETTER than I am.  BETTER Christian.  BETTER evangelist.  BETTER faith.  BETTER dependency on Jesus.  BETTER at being gracious to everyone — inside my head, where I judge everyone and everything, wanting to feel superior to everyone.  And I want an even-BETTER car.  And a BETTER nation, and a BETTER world.  I’m tired of being a great example of a bad example — tired of being such a loser at following Jesus, such an ungracious malcontent.  I want everyone everywhere to be wowed by my BETTER.  I do not like the way He’s made me, and I do not like the role He’s scripted for me.  I want BETTER.  I wanna read a book, or go to a seminar, that would guarantee a BETTER me.

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
