Our nature as human beings propels forth a dual propensity to overcomplicate what is simple and oversimplify what is complex. The antidote to our perception of the dichotomy of life’s incomprehensibilities is a twofold injection: healthy and humble self-awareness (meek and lowly in spirit) and discerning knowledge (wisdom), which is predicated on the desire to know the thoughts of God. I pledge to remain still on the altar of self-sacrifice and stare unblinking at my naked mortality. I also pledge to anesthetize myself from universal principles except one, cruciformity (Christ-likeness). Only then will I decipher when I should respond to life’s delicious details with a simplicity of heart to turn the mysteries of God into a flourishing reality.
