Only ShepherdDave gets involved in political

discussions, because only ShepherdDave is wise in his own eyes, leaning on his own understanding, and therefore is confident-he-knows-what’s-best-for-himself-and-others, is confident-he-knows-what’s-thankable.  Only ShepherdDave attempts to persuade others, gives unsolicited advice/opinion.  Pride, not humility.  ShepherdDave is an independent, the opposite of a dependent like DumbSheepDave, who is childlike, clueless-about-what’s-best.

Democracy was designed by independents for other independents, not created-dependents.  Democracy breeds quarreling.  ShepherdDave is tired of the political divisiveness, the self-righteous, ungracious acrimony in our land, the ridicule of the opposition, and would much prefer a king to democracy.

DumbSheepDave is clueless-about-what’s-best, so he enjoys the grass right in front of him, where his ShepherdJesus has led him, liberated about where his ShepherdJesus will lead him later in the day, tomorrow, next week, month, year.  Only DumbSheepDave experiences the peace that surpasses understanding-idolatry.  Only DumbSheepDave loves everyone, just as they are, and his ShepherdJesus’ genius plan for everyone, just as it is, and thanks his ShepherdJesus for everything and everyone.  Never unsolicited advice, never persuasion, unless directed by his ShepherdJesus.

–ShepherdDave, who sometimes sees the problem, but feels powerless to change himself, needs fresh conviction of the sin of confidence-he-knows-what’s-best, so he might momentarily be DumbSheepDave, enjoying the bliss of Jesus-dependency/humility, so the pre-believers around him might experience the other-worldly humility and other-worldly love of Jesus

Financial Update on GospelFriendships.

As of our Annual Board Meeting Nov17, we’re $13,000 short of covering expenses, and I’m guessing we could end up having a year-end deficit of $5-10,000, but I’m always unsure because of year-end givin

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
