Sanctified Ignorance

"Sanctified ignorance is the belief that if we love God and have committed our lives to Him, everything will work out. And sanctified ignorance is immature theology. If you get up each morning with a clean slate, being open to whatever may happen that day, you will live a life of mediocrity. It is not the path of accomplishment, of excellence, of maximizing our impact and witness. The path of least resistance--just going where it seems to go--creates very crooked streams and very frustrated Christians. The truly godly life is one of focused purpose, having, like Paul, defined the goal and created a plan for its accomplishment." (Dan Miller, 48 Days to the Work You Love, pg. 52)
