Only the judgeless observer leads a peaceful life,

extending grace to all.  The activist, the achiever, lives with enormous pressure to succeed, avoid failure/mistake/embarrassment, to be better, believe better, do better.  And the judgeful observer/people-watcher, noticing weakness in others, robbing others of grace, lives a miserable life of addiction.  Being a competitor, feeling good about self at the expense of others, is the hardest of all addictions to overcome.  Stressful living.  ShepherdDave.

DumbSheepDave on the other hand, is simply the judgeless observer — curious and expectant to see what his ShepherdJesus does NEXT, in Dave, others, circumstances.  Clueless-he-knows-what’s-best.  Enjoying everyone and everything just as it is.  Stressless living.  Ahhh.

–ShepherdDave, who sometimes sees the problem, but always 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
