God Embraces Our Imperfections,That’s Why Jesus Came And Died For Us

God understands our imperfection, that’s why He sent His only
begotten son Jesus Christ, to redeem us from every condemnation (Romans 8:1; 3)

The popular little
story below illustrates it all:

“When I was a little boy, my mom liked to make breakfast
food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when
she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long
ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned toast in
front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad
did was to reach for his toast, smile at my mom, and asked me how my day was at
school. I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching
him smear butter and jelly on that toast and eat every bite! When I got up from
the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for
burning the toast. And I’ll never forget what he said. “Baby, I love burned toast.”

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night, and I
asked him if he really liked his toast burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, “Little Buddy, your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she’s
real tired. And besides a little burnt toast never hurt anyone! You know, life
is full of imperfect things…..and imperfect people. I’m not the best
housekeeper or cook.”

What I’ve learnt over the years is that learning to accept
each other’s shortcoming – and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences –
is the one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and
lasting relationship. And that’s my prayer for you today – that you will learn
to take the good, the bad and the ugly part of your life and lay them at the
feet of GOD. Because in the end, He’s the only One who will be able to give you
a relationship where burnt toast isn’t a deal – breaker! We could extend this
to any relationship in fact – as understanding is the base of any relationship,
be it a husband – wife or parent – child or friendship!

Don’t put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket
– but into your own.

See through God’s eyes and feel through God’s heart, and you
will appreciate the value of every soul including yourself.

People will always forget what you do, and they will always
forget what you say, but they will never, ever forget the way you make them
