Perfection is but a pipe dream. The only perfect being of all creation is God himself and Jesus, His son.
People strive and strive to meet the perfection expectation, but they fail. Not for any reason attributed to themselves or their abilities (maybe lack thereof if you must say), but simply for the fact that perfection was lost as soon as Eve was misled and encouraged by the serpent to eat the forbidden fruit. She, then, influenced Adam to do the same.
There goes perfection straight into the serpents’ waiting arms. Or whatever.
So, from that point on, a person was born with original sin, inescapable.
Although, in that respect, we will not witness perfection until we are allowed into His kingdom, perfection is, nonetheless, aspired for or toward.
But, I believe, although we are all born with this original sin, perfection does exist in who we are, who God created us to be. In other words, God created perfection.
I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. -Psalm 139:14
He made us exactly how He wanted us to be, how He knew we would live best to praise and glorify His name. That’s perfection. He knows us better than we know ourselves, better than our parents or our spouses, our friends, anyone knows us.
In my eyes, perfection is the heart of every child before life gets in the way. Yes, born with original, but has not sinned of his/her own accord as of yet.
Judging by the very definition of and knowing of God’s perfection, it’s something that will be attained only at God’s discretion, but is completely obtainable in the sense that He created it such as was Adam and Eve in the beginning.
When I held my newborn babies at the moment they were cleaned and placed in my arms, I caught a glimpse of perfection. Only a glimpse, as God and His promise after our bodily death is much more, so incredibly much more than my mind can fathom. A glimpse, so small in His universe that it would take the Hubble telescope to see it (to clarify: the Hubble telescope is one of, if not the most, powerful telescope created and in our earthly existence, that’s pretty powerful). Can you imagine how much more HE really is than what our minds can understand?
Through years and years and even more years of research, what our minds envision have not, cannot, and will not put a dent in what God actually is. We have created, through all the research, only a minuscule understanding of how BIG our God is and what He can do. As humans, such as God intended, our minds can only comprehend so much before overload. To understand most things, we have to have something to measure against. We have to have something that helps us perceive the world around us; therefore, everything in our brain has a shape, a size, a color, a smell, a feel, a sound, etc to help discern what’s what. But it’s so much more than that. It’s quite sad that we think we know better than God and have taken what God created to claim as our own.
Accomplish what you will.
Reach the unattainable goal.
Work hard to make a difference.
Give God the glory.
Because perfection lies in our midst, but we will only reach perfection with God’s help.
I hope you all have a wonderfully, exciting, perfect day.
