What if we stop wanting to be perfect?

Plan. Execute. Respond to new requests. Reorganize. Take responsibility. To question ourselves. To change direction. And start over. What if we stopped trying to be perfect?

Rcall yourself an essential thing: you live under the grace of God. God knows you. He loves you. He approves of you. You don't have to go back to slavery and work to get his approval. Guilt destroys. But the gospel is liberating. Your debt is paid. You are loved by God. The apostle Paul reminded the Galatians:

Formerly, not knowing God, you served gods who are not by their nature; but now that you have known God, or rather have been known by God, how do you return to those weak and poor rudiments to which you again want to enslave yourself?
Galatians 4.8-9

What does this mean to you?

You don't need to seek approval from men. You don't need them to be loved by God.

You don't always need more. More money, more material goods. You have everything fully in God.

In fact, you don't have to be perfect.

You are dealing with more and more demands, of responsibilities. You must know that if everything is not done, you are still loved and accepted.

It's not about focusing on your love for God. It is about focusing on His unalterable love.
