If you're like me, you have high standards for yourself, but you should definitely NOT hold yourself to a standard of perfection! Perfection is IMPOSSIBLE to attain. I don't mean to be negative, but it's true. We're people-- we screw up!
I'm sure you've heard the word GRACE before--it's a pretty common word-- but do you know what it really MEANS? Here's the actual definition of grace...
Grace is all about LOVE, KINDNESS, FORGIVENESS, and BEAUTY--a pretty amazing word! It encompasses many of the best traits that you could have. Know the best example of grace? God himself! Part 2 of the definition of grace is about God! He showed us--the unlovable and unworthy-- love, kindness, forgiveness, and He showed us what true beauty is! Because of God's GRACE we can live freely and happily--I think that God's grace is worth more than all of the riches in the world!
When you start trying to hold yourself to that standard of grace, soon enough you will begin to GROW in grace! The more you think and act with love and kindness, the more grace you will have, and God will even shine through you--He is the creator of grace after all!
Go out into the world and GROW in GRACE. Show the world how wonderful FORGIVENESS, LOVE, KINDNESS, and GOD can be!!
