Jesus provides contentment,
but only to the freshly humble — those freshly DEAD to their own worthiness, reputation, financial security, job security, relationship security…those freshly unfazed at the possibility of losing everything, willing to be nobodies, losers, pitied by all. Because the freshly humble find so much contentment in Jesus alone. Jesus is ENOUGH for the freshly humble.
