ShepherdDave has no clue,

how much he fails at following Jesus.  He acknowledges that he’s not perfect, that he sins from time to time, like when he gets angry, but he fails to see that he never stops sinning, that there is a dark side to everything he ever does, even the seemingly selfless/loving things he does, fails to see that his every thought is at root, self-centered self-absorption – all about Dave and feeling superior to others.  Clear-sighted about the sins of others, blind to his own.  Assuming, willfully doing, not asking, not thanking, confident-he-knows-what’s-best/thankable, confessing Jesus without experiencing the benefit of Jesus.  To be pitied above all men.
