Perfection… of course all human beings want to get it. Having a healthy body, lovely family, highest grade, secure job, nice home, everyone want it, don’t they? Who want live alone, no money, no friends, jobless, and homeless? However, in the world we live in today, you can’t get everything you want.
Take a look at some businessmen. They might be success in their career and got wealthy, but how was their family? Some of them were unmarried, while others had problems in their family. There were only a few of them who had healthy relationship with their family.
So, is it wrong to dream a perfect live? Absolutely not. Everyone should set a goal as high as possible. Yet, the problem appeared when they couldn’t get the goal. While some people worked harder, the others got stress and gave up, even the worse was they gave up their live and chose to die. For those people, the pressure was unbearable.
Let me ask you a question, who put a heavy weight on your shoulder? Are they not the society, are they? The society told us that if we want to live happily, we must have everything that I wrote before. They told us to be success in everything and if you were having most of it but missed only one thing, it couldn’t be considered as a success. That’s why most of people couldn’t stand it because they regretted the thing that they couldn’t achieve and forgot the others that they have had. It seems that if they were imperfect and unsuccessful, they wouldn’t be accepted by the society.
Now, let’s take a look at God. Does He want us to be perfect? Yes, He does. Matthew 5:48 tells us. However, the distinction of God and the society is while the society gives us no room for imperfection, God accepts us even we are imperfect. Roma 5:8 tells us that God love us even we were a sinner. Yes, He wants us to be perfect, but He knows that human is imperfect. Nobody’s perfect, isn’t they? That’s why God will make us perfect. When you put your life in His hands, your family, career, study, wealth, everything you have, I believe He will make it perfect. Ok, maybe it’s true that you still are not be able to get your dreams come true, but you will find a satisfaction in your hearth. You need not hold the burden of perfection and successful life from society any longer. You are free to be imperfect and unsuccessful as long as in the eyes of God it is a perfect and success life that He created for you…
