Imperfect

My parents weren’t perfect. Far from it. They made many mistakes. They did the best they could with the tools they had. I chose to forgive their failings, and my life is better because I chose forgiveness and grace rather than resentment and bitterness.

I pray my children will do the same for me and that their lives are better for it.

  1. A pastor friend of mine likes to say, “We all have feet of clay.” I think he means for me to make my default setting be forgiveness when dealing with other imperfect humans. I’ve tried to do that and it’s been a big help—especially when I need forgiveness from others myself.
