Self-awareness commended in Proverbs 14:8.

“The wisdom of the prudent is to give thought to their ways [pay attention to their thoughts, feelings, reactions as they go through their day],

“but the folly of fools is deception.” [self-deception about our independence/pride/confidence-we-know-what’s-best, not to mention others-deception, by being less than transparent, or worse].

We independents are fools.  The wise, however, are dependent, childlike, clueless-about-what’s-best, ASKing Jesus and THANKing Jesus, about evathang, curious and expectant to see what SovereignShepherdJesus does NEXT, in the dependent, others, circumstances.

—ShepherdDave, who only sees the problem when he’s been freshly convicted of the sin of independence/pride, so he’s momentarily DumbSheepDave, enjoying the bliss of Jesus-dependency/Jesus-contentment/Jesus-humility, clueless-he-knows-what’s-best, curious/expectant to see what his SovereignShepherdJesus does NEXT, so the seculars around him might experience the love of Jesus
