—Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest (12 April, "Complete and Effective Dominion") [emphasis mine]
That's it. That's the whole ball of wax. That's the wall I hit time and again, the struggle I try to dress up in theological/philosophical garb so that it looks like I'm being a deep thinker instead of a stubborn, self-centered. disobedient pig. If I am indeed going to wrestle with the desire to call bullshit on others, I'd better be willing to do it on myself. And that's it.
But that's also the hope and the promise. Those outweigh my own petty considerations. Thanks be to God.
