ShepherdDave worships somebodies.

Is in awe of somebodies.  Interested  in their lives.  What makes them tick.  Because ShepherdDave is a somebody wannabe.  Competitive.  Worldly.  Striving for excellence in ministry and in all of life.  Not content with his accomplishments, possessions.  Not content with himself, wanting to be better, do better, believe better.  Not content with Jesus.  Bottomless pit of neediness.  Yet blind to the enormity of his pride/neediness.

“What is highly valued among men is detestable in God’s sight,” said Jesus.

—ShepherdDave, consumed with somebodiness, except when he’s been freshly convicted of the sin of independence/confidence-he-knows-what’s-best/pride/worldliness/dissatisfaction-with-Jesus-and-His-imputed-somebodiness, so he’s momentarily DumbSheepDave, in awe of his SovereignShepherdJesus, indifferent to human somebodiness, enjoying others just as they are, including ShepherdDave, and enjoying the bliss of Jesus-dependency/Jesus-contentment, so the nonbelievers around him might experience the other-worldly humility and other-worldly love of Jesus
