The BEST-case scenario,

is what Jesus has for me, right now, in these present circumstances.  NOOOO.  My flesh thinks the BEST-case scenario is…easy…things going MY way, as judged by my flesh.  Dave’sFlesh is confident-it-knows-what’s-best, but in reality, it dunno nuttin about what’s best for me, or others.  Dave’sFlesh LOVES feeling great physiologically, free of pain with gobbsa energy, strength, confidence.  Ummm, sweet.   But Jesus sometimes thwarts the desire of my flesh for easy, and instead, gives me harrrd.  My flesh HATES harrrd.  Fails to recognize that suffering comes from the hand of a loving Savior to retrain me in a much-better way of living — dependent on Him, curious and expectant to see what He does NEXT, in me, others, circumstances, THANKing Him for everything just as it is, and everyone just as we are.   Jesus-dependency is the pearl of great price, worth selling all to get.   Whatever it takes, Lord, that’s what I want more than anything else in this world.

If you don’t want your kids to be prodigals,

ask Jesus to grow you as the chief confessor in the home, not the chief accuser, or the chief expert on all things Christian.  If you unwittingly give them the impression that you’ve got this Christia
