At church today, one of the speakers was from the High Counsel. I caught the first minute or so as he told a story about his childhood. Then one, two or all three of my children stole my attention. Towards the end of the talk (which I really don’t know what it was about) he talked about striving to be perfect (as in becoming perfect like Christ).
I had a shift of perspective when he said “what can we do to be more perfect today than yesterday? Or actually, what can we do today to become less imperfect than yesterday?”
A simple change of words makes the goal seem more achievable.
