Description of Embracing Obscurity: Becoming Nothing in Light of God's Everything by Anonymous

No matter how famous someone might be, the fact remains; most of the other seven billion people on Earth wouldn't know him or her from the next person. Add this reality to one's shrinking recognizability among the multiple billions down through history, and the worldly emphasis on standing out really falls flat; we're all in this obscurity thing together.

Ironically, the trouble with me and you and the rest of humanity is not a lack of self-confidence but that we have far too much self-importance. To live and die unnoticed would seem a grave injustice to many. It's all too easy to think we're somebody if our portfolio is strong, there are a few letters after our name, or we're well-known at work, church, or school.

As pride creeps in, we are tempted to want more: more recognition, more admiration, more influence, more, more, more. Few have ever given thought to wanting less. That's why we need "Embracing Obscurity."

Putting the premise into immediate action, an established Christian author electing to remain anonymous writes about living and dying in simplicity, contending that true success, as modeled by Jesus, starts with humility, service, sacrifice, and surrender. Such a life involves mystery and banks on the hope that today is just a dress rehearsal for eternity.

When we stop imitating the world and instead choose to embrace obscurity, real life -- chock full of significance, purpose, and renewed passion -- begins.
