We All Have Flaws
Being flawed is not fun. It brings a lot of different emotions and circumstances that are generally uncomfortable. To bring it to a personal level…
I am flawed.
There are a lot of areas in my life that I lack in. I could take the time to list them all out but that would add multiple pages to this entry. The encouraging thing however, is that I am still very young and have lots of life to cultivate a character that is less flawed. While trying to strive and struggle towards the perfection that I will not attain.
For those who know me well, this character quality has never been my strong suit. I have always been behind the curve in relation to other people’s growth in this area. It is something that has closed a lot of doors in my young life. It is something that is frustrating in its onset, but as I have gotten older, I have noticed that I am who I am today by the way that my maturity has progressed.
A Bible verse that has been a huge encouragement to me in this subject as I have been following Jesus has been Philippians 1:6
“And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”
Here, Paul was talking to a whole church body. This should give me, and everyone with flaws, an incredible sense of hope. There has ben a good work started in me, and I will continue to learn and grow until the day Jesus comes back…
WE NEVER ARIVE!
Every single individual will continue to grow and work at the places that they fail in. There is no shame in being someone with faults. The only individual to attain perfection was the one who died for you and me. Why would I, or anyone else, try to compare ourselves wfith a perfect savior?
We are selfish.
In our brokenness we think that we can look like Jesus with our sin, which is not possible. But the harsh reality is that the only thing we can do is ask to be in relationship with him so he can make us flawless.
