When I’m impatient,

I never believe in Jesus’ sovereignty.  Or when I’m fearful.  Or discouraged.  I don’t believe it’s UP TO HIM.  It’s up to ME.  Like the Pharisees, I live in denial of how much I have to lose, by giving up everything in my life to follow Him, especially the righteousness/reputation/somebodiness I’ve worked so hard to achieve.  I’m unwilling to be a failure/loser/nobody in any area of my life.  So I’m impatient, competitive, critical.  Dave vs everyone.  I just haven’t seen it so clearly in the past.  Sobering.

UNLIKE the Pharisees, I confess Jesus as Sovereign, as Lord, but in daily life, I’m just like them.  The lord of my life is ME.

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
