ShepherdDave is always wowed by

extraordinary human accomplishment, competence, excellence, somebodiness, outside the Church and inside the Church.  But human-wow fuels addiction/idolatry in ShepherdDave.  DumbSheepDave, however, is only wowed by his ShepherdJesus.  And Jesus-wow brings a.m.a.z.i.n.g peace.  Ahhh.

ShepherdDave is always hyper-competitive, always looking for ways to feel superior to others at their expense, especially opponents/enemies/losers/stupids.  Amazingly, DumbSheepDave is thankful for everyone and everything, just as they are, even enemies, and even thankful for the harrrd in his life, trusting that his ShepherdJesus knows exactly what He’s doing, is worthy of DumbSheepDave’s trust.  Ahhh.

But it’s impossible for ShepherdDave to temporarily become DumbSheepDave, unless the Spirit freshly convicts Dave of the sin of independence.

–DumbSheepDave, more wowed by Jesus than ever, sometimes, wondering if the pre-believers around him are noticing more ahhh in 2014
