Only a proud believer,
fears humiliation. A humble believer has a healthy indifference toward failure, success, mediocrity, whatever the outcome. A proud believer, shepherd, independent, controlling-type, leaning on his own understanding/wisdom, can only tolerate excellence, and is to be pitied above all, trapped in a dreadful, performance prison. A dumb sheep is fine with whatever the outcome of his Shepherd’s perfect plan, is even thankful, and interestingly, only dumb sheep experience LIFE — joyful, peaceful, fun-filled living. And only dumb sheep have a contagious Shepherd within, compelling to others.
–DumbSheepDave, grateful for the convicting work of his Shepherd’s Spirit, bringing him back to sanity over and over, hoping the pre-believers around him are noticing the difference Jesus is making in 2013
