Nobody’s Perfect

Nobody's Perfect
“Nobody’s perfect. We’re all just one step up from the beasts and one step down from the angels.” – Jeannette Walls, Half Broke Horses

A Thought
Nobody is perfect – a very simple but true statement.

The only person who ever has been on this earth that is perfect is Jesus. If you try and model perfection then it is Jesus’s life that you must try to follow.  We should always strive to be like Jesus but realistically we can not even come close. 

As the quote states we are above animals but below the Angels.  The secret is to study God’s word and live by the principles that Jesus taught while he was here.


A Prayer
Dear Father

Thank you for the wisdom you have given us in your Word. And we thank you for sending Jesus to live on the earth so that we will have an example of perfection.  May we always be humble and praise Your Name.

We need to learn to apply these principles Jesus taught. As it is stated in Matthew 5:47-48:  “And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Help us to do more than what others do, help us to show perfection in how we treat others. We realize that you Father are truly perfect.

In Jesus name we pray.
