We Weren’t Designed To Be Perfect


We Weren’t Designed To Be Perfect

We weren’t designed to be perfect! It is our imperfections that make us human. We live and we learn.

The Broken Shell

We are not made to be perfect. Beauty is in the flaws. We are fragile yet strong. Life wears us down at times, polishes us at others. We break in places. We endure. It is the hole worn away in the shell that lets us see inside to its center. It’s beautiful when the inside shows, when it shines.

We weren’t designed to be perfect but rather to be real, to be honest and to be humble. “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” John 8:7

No one is perfect. If we want to be forgiven, we must first forgive. What if every person really was doing the best that they could do? What if we celebrated our imperfections?

Often the difference is a minor adjustment in how we view things, how we see others mostly has to do with how we view ourselves. When we can learn to accept our own imperfections we are more likely to accept them in others.

We weren’t designed to be perfect …
