Most of us are mediocre. We just get up in the morning and go to work, over and over again. Our children grow up and leave home and we keep getting out of bed and doing whatever’s in front of us until we can’t get out of bed anymore. While we’re doing that, the body slowly breaks apart. The mind and spirit don’t get stronger, if anything they get weaker—knowledge isn’t power, it is sorrow. The more you know other people, the more you grieve for them. The more you know yourself, the more you know that you are actually decreasing, and Christ is increasing, as he should.
