My favoritest thing to do

all day long, is to secretly sit in judgment over everyone and everything, using my human-wisdom. Outstanding, mediocre, poor. TV, movies, articles, sermons, cars, sports, design, how others drive, whatever. And sometimes sitting in judgment of Jesus and His plan for me, and those I love. I'm not bragging, but confessing. I think I've lived this way all my life, without realizing it. Like a fish in water, oblivious to the water. Rather, I've always considered myself a gracious, loving, encouraging person. Just didn't know myself very well. And interestingly, I've discovered I'm the least happy as JudgeDave/CriticDave, and the happiest when I'm clueless-I-know-what's-best, confident Jesus does, seeing Him behind everyone and everything so I enjoy everyone just as we are, and everything just as it is. Sovereignty-aware. Ahhh.

Judges of others are unmerciful judges of self. Pride, not humility. The humble judge no one.
