Not Perfect

Perfection is overrated. Perfection is unrealistic. Each of us have our own understanding of what constitutes perfection – standards that are unattainable – which are imposed on situations, people and selves.

The idea of perfection varies. In the end, it comes down to our own perceptions. What is ideal in our own eyes.

I think there should be only one standard of perfection for Christians: Jesus Christ.

Why was He perfect?

Simple. He did not sin. No wrong was found in Him (Hebrews 4:15).

Unfortunately, we tend to hold others to our ideas of perfection. And when those standards are not met – some of us tend to become … well … not someone we want to be around.

The point is that we don’t approach God because we are perfect in our own eyes. We approach God because we are not perfect – and through Jesus, we are made holy before God.
