Pretty near

Pretty near

'Leave perfection to God. Us humans gotta settle with pretty near.'

I came across that line in the book 'Mother of Pearl' several years ago.
The particular character who uttered those words have long faded from my memory.
That line found a permanent place in me.
At that time in my life, I wasn't always particularly aware of God's presence. Somehow that line held a certain appeal to me.
Thinking back on it now, they make perfect sense.
Since these last few weeks I have been struggling with a gargantuan load of assignments.
Time and again I kept having a nagging feeling that I could have done better.
I could have started earlier, I could have done more research, I could have spent more time exploring my options.
The end product of my labours could have been better.
Then I'd remember that line. Leave perfection to God.
We humans should strive as hard as we can, do the best we can. We humans are flawed, in every way, only as a reminder that we are just that, humans.
In the end only God can achieve perfection.

Our deeds are not judged by the fruits of our labour.
All we are asked to do is to strive, and the rewards are accorded to us on our efforts.

Leave perfection to God.

I pray that God gives me the strength to strive in the best of my abilities and I thank Him for everyday that I am given.
