“If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood—and indeed the law given to the people established that priesthood—why was there still need for another priest to come, one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron?”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭7:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“Jill” fastidiously prepared the devotional she was to give to her women’s group. The details of her talk were meticulously typed and the lesson precisely timed. The irony was not lost on her that the topic was “perfectionism.”

Many of us get caught up in trying to portray a perfect life through carefully planned photos depicting one happy moment after another, projecting personas that just are not real. Our sin inclination inside us causes perfection tendencies to go awry. If true perfection were attainable there would be no need of a Savior. Because He IS perfect, He covers our imperfections. We can drop our guard; we don’t have to pretend to be something we simply cannot be. Isn’t it time to lay down that burden?🚦
