“Indeed, there is no one on earth who is righteous, no one who does what is right and never sins.” -Ecclesiastes 7:20
We often try to fix our imperfections. But fixing is for machines; people need to be healed. With healing comes vulnerability and humility. You don’t have to maintain your reputation with your friends and family. If by being vulnerable you lose your friends, they’re not your friends. You will draw closer to people as you become more vulnerable with your struggles and people will trust you more. In this age of being tricked by bankers, by religious people, there is a new love for anti-heroes and to leaders with a limp. I think there’s a reason for that. It is so important if you want to get to this place of humility to start paying attention to your self-talk.
PRAYER: Thank you, God, for healing me in my imperfections
REFLECTION: Are you able to accept your imperfections?
