We have to stop looking at ourselves as imperfect beings because we are made perfect in the image of God.
Do you look at your child as no longer being innocent because he or she made a mistake? As a parent don’t you anticipate that he or she will make a mistake? Do you love your child any less when they have not taken your advice and choose to do wrong instead? Of course not!
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139:14
We have history. We humans were created to make mistakes. We are not robotic, and God did not want us to be robotic. He wants us to be independent thinkers to know right from wrong. He wants us to choose right. God wants us to make a choice.
God knew it would take a history of time for us to finally learn a perfect way. As an adult, don’t we wish we knew what we know now when we were younger? How much easier would life have been for us, but instead, we had to understand for ourselves the difference between right and wrong and this meant we had to make mistakes.
We have to start understanding that we have a perfect Father in heaven. We are his children that are bound to make mistakes; even make them over and over until we finally learn what is right.
Our future is now in the hands of our children since they have the ability to see the history of mistakes that we have created. They can learn from the mistakes we made. We have created a deep mess of the worst of the worst mistakes, and now we need to rely on our children to fix them.
We are in a time of advanced technology that is enabling us to unite our minds world-wide and make serious positive changes for a better future. We have hope since our children are already very passionately involved in having new inventive improvements for the times ahead.
Do not think you are imperfect because we were meant to be perfected. In God’s eyes we are perfectly made ~ we just have to start believing it.
