Mommy Mantra for June 18, 2013: Be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect. (Matthew 5:48)
Sounds like God is really setting us up for failure….how could we be perfect! If we want we can sit down every day and count all the times we just didn’t do it right….AGAIN. But that is not what God wants! He isn’t keeping score of all the things we do wrong, if He did how could we stand! No, God is asking for us to spend each day thinking about how can we be the best of ourselves, to others and for ourselves.
The old adage of counting our blessings is helpful for mind, body and soul.
