I shall not conform to the customs of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of my mind that I may decern that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.
Inspired by Romans 12: 2
I understand myself better, those around me, and my surroundings through interaction and fellowship with others. It is my service to God and his creation that facilitates my enlightenment and evolution. Paradoxically, the growth that I desire comes from an outward gaze and not an internal one.
As iron sharpens iron, So too, my fellowship with others is of mutual benefit. I shall do nothing in self-conceit or contention, but with an attitude of humility, I shall esteem others as more important than myself. I will not just look out for my self-interests but also the interests of others.
