The worst thing about being DumbSheepDave,

is being humble.  My flesh hates the lowly place, clueless place, weak place, childlike place.  So it’s initially painful when the Spirit freshly convicts me of my independence, and I’m moved from being confident, competitive JudgeDave/ShepherdDave, analyzer/critic of all, down, down, down, to lowly DumbSheepDave, pitied by the strong, but indifferent to their pity.  Enabled to love them.
