It's just RIGHT THERE WITHIN!

You must have heard someone saying, "To seek & find perfection in an imperfect world is a futile exercise". Of course, it's no big deal arguing on that.

I once had an opportunity & privilege to witness and later minister by offering a prayer of peace & reconciliation for a dying old man and his pensively sad son at the bedside.

Toward the end of a father-son hearty exchange and sharing of memories, feelings, and sentiments, the old man smacks of resignation spoke, "The attending medical specialist didn't have it...the charlatan had none of it... the religionists couldn't deliver it". Retorting, the son uttered, "What all of them lack is just right there within you, father!". Then, quickly as though coming from out of the blue, the old man rejoined, "Son, how I’d wish you speak  with an angelic tongue!"

What a brief but revealing real-life scene I witnessed first hand. Behind the scene, I discerned an all-encompassing message of encouragement about "Perfection-at-work" even at the lowest ebb of the darkest hour in the life of two lovers being reconciled just on time before the inevitable came.

Well then, where ought we to go to find perfection?  If the imperfect world with all the glamour it can offer doesn't have it, where is it?

I still heard the wise counsel resounding, "Perfection consists not in the quantifiable assets a person possesses, large or little, and useful they may be for a time.  Rather, it consists in his 'transforming and becoming' who he really is as he was made-to-be by his Eternal Maker"


Friends, I believe it pays to  keep going in our lifetime process of transforming-to-becoming who we really are in the light of Gospel Truth...LET’S KEEP GOING  FOR PERFECTION! (Matthew 5:48).

The Good Lord already did His part even as He still is. Ours is to do and keep doing our part given His abounding Mercy and Grace.

Be of GOOD COURAGE!
