What is stupid-awe?

Being in awe of human excellence – others and my own, or wanting to be in awe of my own, by assuming excellence is credited to humans achieving greatness, or a product achieving greatness.  Intermediate-awe.  Misplaced-awe.  Horizontal-awe.  Only the competitive have stupid-awe.  ShepherdDave.  Intense, prideful.

Jesus-awe is recognizing that Jesus the CreatorSustainer of the Universe, gets all credit for all human excellence.  Ultimate-awe.  Vertical-awe.  DumbSheepDave.  Competes with no one.  Enjoys everyone.  Jerks included.  Because he sees his Shepherd behind everyone and everything.  Ahhh.

Only the Spirit can momentarily transform ShepherdDave into DumbSheepDave.  Jesus-awe.  Short-lived humility.

–WeakDave, with less stupid-awe than ever, because of the convicting work of Jesus’ Spirit, wondering if the pre-believers around him are noticing more peace and joy
