It’s hard to say who coined this phrase, but they were right. At some point we need to relax from such aspirations and take a break. Mind you, if you are a brain surgeon, we all are thinking perfection anyway…
In the day to day, we can expect others to be perfect when the standard is beyond reasonable possibilities. Children will always draw within the lines. The gas pump will always drip at the nozzle when you’ve finished. The Yankees won’t always win the World Series. The President won’t always have the answer that makes everyone happy.
We need to take a deep breath and aim for our best. Now that would be just perfect.
“Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children”
Ephesians 5:1 NIV
