There is a false humility that breeds subjectivity and precludes certainty. Because we cannot know anything absolutely, we assume we can know nothing adequately—and forbid others from thinking or speaking so.

 

There is another humility, born of conviction, that produces faithful service and selfless love. Because we know some things with certainty, we act with conviction and grace-driven purpose.

 

To one of these we are called. To the other we succumb with alarming frequency, giving in to the fads and falsehoods of this present darkness.
