We live in a world that expects or rather demands perfection of us. From our boss to our teacher to our parents to our spouses. Some might call it excellence, but when you get right down to it, you personally work towards perfection. Even if it is just the best you can do, it is YOUR perfection. The sad thing is, the harder we try to get something perfect, we all know it is impossible. Sure you might get a perfect score on a test, but to truly make something perfect is impossible. God is the only one that is able to make things perfect. We see it all around us in nature and even see his perfection in how we are made, how we grow, and how we heal.
The Mighty One, God the LORD,
speaks and summons the earth
from the rising of the sun to its setting.
Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty,
God shines forth.
– Psalm 50:1-2
