I don’t suppose you’ll know to whom this is directed unless you are that person. That’s alright though. I doubt that you’ll know the circumstances in which I write either unless you are that one. Keep reading anyway, it isn’t so particular as to be enveloped. If it were I’d not write it here.
I was nearly finished formulating this thought when we parted this evening. It’s just a thought and certainly could be written ‘better’ but it’s late.
If what is required is for us to ‘deal’ and be perfect according to that ideal standard, we shouldn’t take encouragement from Christ in everything He did.
We all have trials. His was a Cross, ours are splinters from that. (That seems fine by itself.) He fell with His three times. We ought not be surprised or frustrated when we do with ours. The best way seems to be to continue despite falls and apparent failures from being overloaded.
I don’t know anyone who does that perfectly in this life, but the ones who persevered are saints. The standard isn’t doing everything we set out to do completely and perfectly. It’s to do what we can (and should) in the time given us, to the best of our ability, with the grace of God.
Tomorrow will be a new opportunity.
