Perfectionism is far from perfect

How foolish can you be? After starting your Christian lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort? Gal. 3:3

Perfectionism can hinder growth and productivity. Some of us hang back because we fear failure. Nothing we do seems good enough. That same transformative Spirit that raised Christ from the dead, that blew through the upper room, that enabled the work of the early church enables our efforts for Christ. We don’t have to be perfect because He is.

Lord, help me stop worrying about doing it perfectly and rely on Your strength instead of mine.
