Why do we strive to be perfect?
“Sure there is not a righteous man on earth that does good and never sins.” -Ecclesiastes 7:20
God knows we aren’t perfect, so why do we keep trying, thinking we need to be?
We get frustrated with ourselves when we see our imperfections…
Angry with others when they display their imperfections…
But God loves us anyways. He tells us we don’t need to be, aren’t made to be perfect – That is His job. He is the perfect one. We are only called to be loved by Him and act out His love in this world to other imperfect creatures.
Let us then, love and He has loved. Let us accept our imperfections and those of others and see them as a sign of our dependence on Jesus.
Now and Forever.
