The beauty of being human is that we are free to be imperfect beings. Every flaw and every failure are a lesson. This is God’s way of teaching us how to be ourselves amid all our chaotic encounters. The main point is- our mistakes make us perfect in the best possible way.
The full potential of knowing who we are as human beings allow us to put ourselves in a humbling position. Regardless of social judgment and prejudice, the fulfillment of spiritual contentment grants us freedom and awareness to get through life without giving in to the temptations of evil. Through this knowledge, we will always be set in strong faith through the course of our lifetime; and by God’s grace and salvation, the wonders of being free will lead us to a beautiful life.
What should we do when we start to doubt our identities? How do we recognize our uniqueness?
Try to reflect on the following bible verses:
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them. – Genesis 1:27
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – Jeremiah 29:11
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. – 1 John 3:1
God has already made sure that His children will become the church. No matter how we look at it, He made us this way, and so, this way shall we be.
Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will have not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure. – 1 John 3:2-3
Being His instruments of peace, love, and care does not require us to be popular, well-spoken, wealthy, or strong. We are all capable in our own little ways. The things we do are the things that make us who we are; and thus, our mistakes make us perfect.
