Why do I want others different,

better? Why do I want government different, better? Why do I want ME different, better? My human-wisdom.


My human-wisdom thinks it knows BETTER than SovereignShepherdJesus, how things should be going in this world, for now. Knows what's thankable and what's not. Pride, not humility. Adultlike, not childlike. Human-wisdom-dependent, not Jesus-dependent. Confident-my-human-wisdom-knows-best, not confident-Jesus-knows-best, for now. And my human-wisdom does NOT like Jesus' genius plan. My human-wisdom has a BETTER plan. Jesus is not ENOUGH for my human-wisdom.


-- Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, full of human-wisdom, except when freshly convicted by the Spirit of his arrogance
