Just a little funny mixed with truth on a Monday morning…
We need to “block out” more perfection seeking and get back to reality.
Yet, we need to seek a bit more perfection and not be “so real.”
You may be sitting there reading and think these statements are in such contradiction that they can’t possibly survive the same sentence.
But I tell you, they can thrive!
Too often in our modern culture, we are seeking such fake perfection that we lose sight of who we are and who we are meant to be.
If we could only grasp reality and allow authenticity to shine through, the outcome would be unimaginably beautiful.
Too often in our “get real” society, we are searching for such a realism that we forget that it’s sometimes kind to not leave our emotions, demands and opinions as a burden for someone else to carry.
If we could only grasp perfection in a way that allows love, faith and hope to thrive, the results would be absolutely infallible.
Why don’t we start here on this Monday morn?
Why don’t we start right here with you and me?
We can make a difference if we’d just try.
We could transform our world if we’d just begin.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things arejust, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.Philippians 4:8-9
But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.Philippians 4:10-13
