Dog Dung CV

The very credentials these people are waving around as something special, I'm tearing up and throwing out with the trash - along with everything else I used to take credit for. And why? Because of Christ. Yes, all the things I once thought were so important are gone from my life. Compared to the high privilege of knowing Christ Jesus as my Master, firsthand, everything I once thought I had going for me is insignificant - dog dung. I've dumped it all in the trash so that I could embrace Christ and be embraced by him. I didn't want some petty, inferior brand of righteousness that comes from keeping a list of rules when I could get the robust kind that comes from trusting Christ - God's righteousness.

Philippians 3:7-9 The Message

Dog dung. Trash. So much crap. What a way to describe a curriculum vitae, a list of achievements. Having the right family connections counts for nothing. Having a religious background - worth squat. Clean lifestyle - don't smoke, don't drink... much. Doesn't register. Orthodox theology, emergent theology... whatever. Reputation in ministry. Knowing all the latest praise and worship songs or having a great prayer life. These are not the foundations on which I want to base my life. I'm glad that even if my life falls apart I continue on the same basis with God - a relationship centred on Jesus Christ - who he is and what he's done.

Desperate definitely describes me. Has anyone here read and tried any of the ideas from Desperate for Money? It certainly sounds good...
