Whose glory do you want on display?
Sometimes we neglect to do what we need to do out of for fear of not doing it perfectly. l have struggled with this on many occasions; I found that when I sought out my desire for the approval from others or I was afraid of failing were the fuel for my tendencies toward "Perfection."
On the other hand, We pursue God's glory in the quest for excellence instead of own;
we’re determined to do something as well as possible within a given set of talents, resources, and time limits ~.Excellence with God's glory!
The Lord gives a humbling contrast of man's glory with His own in Isaiah 40:6-8
This reminds us of the futility of seeking my glory over His, When we seek independence with perfection apart from
- the perfect work of Jesus, and the grace of God -
We struggle with the "imperfection" which breeds anxiety, frustration, anger, judgment, criticism, and even despair or hopelessness. This is not only exhausting but creates paralysis as well the neglect of necessary or good things "
God does not want perfection to keep us prisoner over its rule. The life God has given us is far better than the one we think we think we can run ourselves -
He created us! Let's truly receive grace.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us Hebrews 12:1
