God isn't looking for perfection...so why are we?
No one ever asked me to be perfect, but somewhere in my mind, I decided that I had to be. I've been struggling with perfection my whole life, but when I gave my life to Jesus I put this extra heavy burden on myself to live up to a standard of perfection that God never set for me. I immediately fell into legalism trying to do all of the right things not realizing that I don't have to earn God's love. With time, God will teach us everything we need to fulfill a life that is pleasing to Him.
By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. - 2 Peter 1:3
So, how do I learn to overcome perfectionism as a Christian?
1. Receive the free gift of salvation & forgiveness.
2. Accept that you are a work in progress.
3. Embrace every temptation as an opportunity to receive God's help.
