The biggest deception of all,
is that getting my way delivers happiness. Getting my way is based on human-wisdom. Getting my way delivers ADDICTION to getting my way. So human-wisdom is lord, not Jesus. So I don't experience the benefit of Jesus in THIS life. And seculars are not drawn to the Jesus in human-wisdom-dependent Christians, because we human-wisdom-dependent Christians operate with human power, just like seculars. Yawn.
What can we human-wisdom-dependent Christians DO? Pay attention to our thoughts, feelings, reactions, especially when alone and undistracted, so we RECOGNIZE the problem, so we can CONFESS and hopefully be momentarily dead to human-wisdom and momentarily full of Jesus -- His humility and His unconditional love.
